Believing her husband Tyler has been seeing another woman, Barbara Winter, behind her back, Elizabeth Flagg begins a relationship with Michael McLain, who then blackmails her with her love letters. During a struggle for the letters, a gun goes off, McLain falls and Elizabeth flees. But police find McLain's wife, Eva, near the body and charge her with murder.
With a guilty conscience, Elizabeth asks her husband, a lawyer, to defend Eva in court. He endeavors to prove someone else did the shooting, unaware his own wife was directly involved. Eva eventually confesses, but is set free when it is determined that she acted in self-defense.
