Natalie Lane, an artist's model, marries Roddy Warren, son of a steel magnate, who has been a persistent suitor and idler; but because she is considered an unsuitable match by his family, Roddy is disinherited.

To help the domestic finances, Natalie, who has previously resisted the advances of Byrne Travers, a famous artist, agrees to pose for him. Roddy is unaware of this arrangement, but the elder Warren learns of Natalie's clandestine visits to the artist and informs his son; they discover Travers murdered in his apartment.
