Upon breaking his engagement and getting thrown out of his boardinghouse for nonpayment of rent, railroad engineer Bill (Grant Withers) moves in with his best friend, Jack (Regis Toomey), and his wife, Lily (Mary Astor). The three live contentedly for some time, until Bill realizes he has fallen in love with Lily -- and she with him. Unwilling to hurt Jack, Bill moves out, but Jack grows suspicious and confronts him.
