Billy Grant, who is jilted by his society sweetheart because of his alcoholism, gets drunk, drives his car
into a motor truck, and wakes up in a hospital. Anxious to prevent his relatives from falling heir to his
property, he persuades his probationary nurse, Jane Brown, to marry him. Billy recovers, and while
convalescent he decides to go home, and although he loves Jane, to free her. When she is threatened with
expulsion for being out after hours, Billy discovers that she has gone to comfort a young girl in the
maternity ward; he defends Jane, and she promises to live with him as his wife.
