When Jim Mason's ( Lon Chaney ) marriage is ruined because of his wife extravagance, and he becomes a thief. His first crime is to steal the famous Allison pearls, but during the burglary, he meets Florence Allison ( Vera Sisson ), whose home is about to be broken up through the neglect of her husband. Jim, recalling his own tragic marriage, suggests a plan to restore the love of Florence's husband. In return, she tells Jim to keep the pearls, but he promises that he will return them in six months if his plan fails. When Mr. Allison ( T. D. Crittenden ) returns home after a night on the town, he finds his wife bound and unconscious, and realizing how his neglect has endangered her life, he gives up his night life and returns to a happy marriage with his wife. As the months pass, Jim resists the temptation to dispose of the pearls. Bill ( William Quinn ), one of Jim's crooked buddies, is convinced that Jim has the pearls and they fight over them. Jim is injured, and drags himself to the Allison home. There he finds that Florence has once again won the love of her husband, and she bestows on Jim the permanent right to the pearls.
This 1915 silent drama was produced by the Victor Film Company starring Lon Chaney. Sadly it remains a lost film.
