Playwright Lee Clavering falls in love with a mysterious and beautiful woman. She reveals herself as Austrian Countess Zattiany, formerly New York socialite Mary Ogden, who, by medical means, has had her youth restored. Lee plans to marry the countess, but a former admirer of hers intervenes, points out her folly, and escorts her back to Austria. Lee finds romance with flapper Janet Oglethorpe.
