This drama had two directors: Maurice Elvey handled most of the film, but the fantasy sequence (which was beautifully tinted) was directed by Henry Otto. Newlyweds Alice (Billie Dove) and Robert (Jack Mulhall) are already having differences over money. He gets angry at her extravagances, especially when she spends more than they can afford on an imitation pearl necklace. Ridgeway, a client of Robert's (John St. Polis), invites the couple to a party. Robert wants to decline, but Alice insists that they go. Ridgeway loans Alice a real pearl necklace, to "restore their lustre," and everyone heads for his yacht. Ridgeway pays Alice a lot of attention, while a young widow tries to vamp Robert.
