James Kirkwood and Marion Leonard have a daughter. The parents go back to their society routines, Kirkwood to business and his club, Leonard to her whist parties. When the girl becomes ill, Kirkwood grows concerned and tells his wife should should take care of their daughter. She, however, thinks he is being unreasonable and returns to her friends.

By the end of 1909, D.W. Griffith had all his techniques well in hand, including strong acting, good crowd direction and his Victorian story-telling to guide the plot, which s a trifle underwritten for two reels of film. The copy I looked at, on the Library of Congress' National Screening Room, was in good shape for the first half, but the second half had large parts so light they were unwatchable: the portions set in the couple's home.
