David Spencer falls in love with Babbie Norris, an actress, but his wealthy, propriety conscious father, John Spencer, makes him marry the aristocratic Janice Lane. After five years with Janice, David is miserable, and so goes to the river to drown himself. When he sees a corpse floating in the water, however, he decides instead to change clothes with it, and leave his own identification cards on the dead man. Then, starting life over, David gets work as a laborer. He meets Babbie once again, and soon moves to the Northwest with her. Meanwhile, after the dead man has been identified as David, Janice marries Dr. Stone, whom she has loved for several years.
