A young woman (Stanley Timberlake) dumps her fiancée (Craig Fleming) and runs off with her sister's (Roy Timberlake) husband (Peter Kingsmill). They marry, settle in Baltimore, and Stanley ultimately drives Peter to drink and suicide. Stanley returns home to Richmond only to learn that her sister Roy and old flame Craig have fallen in love and plan to marry. The jealous and selfish Stanley attempts to win back Craig's affections, but her true character is revealed when, rather than take the rap herself, she attempts to pin a hit and run accident on the young black clerk (Parry Clay) who works in Craig's law office.

All right, so you're going to die! But you're an old man, you've lived your life - I haven't lived mine - mine's hardly begun. Think of *me* uncle! Think of what'll happen to *me* if you don't get me out of this. You're not even listening! You don't care what happens to me any more than the others. You'd *let* me go to prison. All you're thinking of is your own miserable life. Well you can die for all I care! *Die!*
