A woman with a sordid past is redeemed by love in this silent melodrama from low-budget Sanford Productions. Margarita Darlow (Ligio Di Golconda) refuses a marriage proposal from David Orland (Gaston Glass), a young man about to leave for Paris. Earlier, Margarita had sought financial help from Edwin Ramsey (Wilfred Lucas), who had seduced her, put her up in his apartment as his "niece," and "rented" her out to his equally unsavory friend Donald Gorham (Bryant Washburn). David forgives her, however, and Margarita follows him to Paris. Forced to work as a model, Margarita is confronted with her past by Ramsey, who blackmails her into returning with him to New York. On the verge of suicide, Margarita is rescued by Mary Cullen (Gladys Brockwell), Gorham's tough but kindhearted moll. David, meanwhile, kills the nasty Ramsey in a duel.
