Romantic drama in which a materialistic young model fulfils her avaricious ambitions when she marries a millionaire, but soon finds that long-term happiness is by no means guaranteed. Her husband is a tyrant who uses his wife as an ornament, so she seeks solace elsewhere and finds a well-meaning doctor who really does have decent principles. Their life together, however, is hindered by the social conventions of the day.
