Synopsis

The heroine Larita (Isabel Jeans) is married to a drunken brute. After he catches her almost being seduced by the artist who has been painting her picture, he brings suit for divorce. Adultery is the only ground for divorce in England at this time. Since she is now a disgraced woman of " easy virtue", Larita takes to the French Riviera where she ensnares a rich young suitor John Whittaker (Robin Irvine). She doesn't tell him about her checkered past and his family does not like her.
