Folly Vallance weds millionaire Anthony Bond solely out of love for his money. When he realizes
this, Bond insists upon a marriage in name only. Folly, out of exasperation, plunges into the social
whirl where Bond's close friend, Keene Mordaunt, befriends her. When Count Svensen attempts to
blackmail Folly into running away with him, Keene pursues them to a country house where they
meet Anthony, who accuses his friend of treachery. Folly finally recognizes her love for her husband
