A youth encounters a girl who is delivering flowers to his celebrated diva mother. They fall in love. The youth leaves for war and the diva brings the young wife into the theatre where she is dazzled by the lustre and social gaiety. She embraces it with all her love. Her husband is advised she has been unfaithful. He comes home to find her as merry as ever, and unembarrassed by her new life; she has passed him by and will go on to new glory without him.
