Ethel Westcourt discovers that her husband is having an affair with another woman and that her daughter, Kittens, is seeing too much of Jerry Naughton. In an effort to break up the relationship between Naughton and Kittens, Ethel goes to see Naughton at his apartment and falls in love with him. Her husband discovers Ethel's new love and begs her to return to him. Ethel refuses and takes a boat to Paris, intending to start a new life there.
