After a year of marriage, Eloise Farrington (Marguerite Clark) is unhappy because her husband Hilary (Frank Mills), a successful novelist, neglects her for his work. She seeks solace with Darrell McKnight (Gaston Glass), who neglects his fiancée, Nora Gail (Helen Greene), and promises to elope with him, if no lovemaking is involved, should Hilary leave for his Norwich, Long Island bungalow without inviting her. When Hilary departs, Eloise phones Darrell, but Nora connives with Hilary to upset their plans. Hilary returns and says that he will not stand in their way. He offers the bungalow, and when they refuse, pulls out a revolver and insists. When Nora arrives at the bungalow, Darrell's suggestion that she and Hilary planned a rendezvous, provokes Eloise's jealousy. That night, after Darrell tries to enter Eloise's room, she regards him as a cad and calls her uncle, the Bishop (A. H. Busby), to help get rid of Darrell and Nora. In the morning, the Bishop marries Darrell and Nora, who have made up. They leave Hilary and Eloise, who, realizing their love for each other, begin their second honeymoon.
This lost silent was based on the play The Naughty Wife by Fred Jackson. Produced and released by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation it starred the popular actress, Marguerite Clark.
