Lydia Kenyon (Claudette Colbert) feels she is neglected and treated insensitively by her husband, Tony (Ray Milland), on their fifth wedding anniversary. She meets a lawyer, Jim Blake (Brian Aherne), and though she eventually divorces her husband, and nearly marries the young lawyer instead, in a moment of crisis she realises she loves her husband, and returns to him.
