Efficient and capable businesswoman, Mildred Carr ( Ethel Clayton ) falls in love with real estate broker Lewis Alden ( Warner Baxter ), who is inclined to be dictatorial and a spendthrift. Five years after their marriage, she has secretly saved $2,000 to purchase a home. Finding that he needs the money in order to save himself from financial embarrassment, she schemes to offer him the money through Harvey Beecher ( Clarence Burton ), a neighbour. Beecher's jealous wife reveals the secret negotiation between Harvey and Mildred, and when the option lapses Alden leaves home in a rage. Later he sends her an apology and a check for the amount. Mildred finds that the house she wanted has been sold--then is astonished to learn that the owner is Alden, who has paid his debts and bought the house for his wife; she accepts his forgiveness and they are reunited.
Sadly this 1922 silent film starring Warner Baxter and produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, is now a lost film.
