To save her sister, Natalie becomes the mistress of Wall Street magnate Alvin Dunning ( Joseph Kilgour ), until he publicly humiliates her and she determines to free herself. Meanwhile, Chandler returns after having discovered a copper mine in South America. Invited to a party at the Dunning house, he meets Natalie as Dunning's mistress and, heartbroken, abruptly departs.
