As described in an adoption published in the film magazine Shadowland, Billy Bartlett (Pallette) suspects his wife Laura (Mayo), who has been spending time with Philip Evans (Buckley), is having an affair. When upstairs neighbors Jack and Blanny Wheeler (Trenton and Allison) visit to play cards, Jack confides in Billy that he tells his wife that he is going to the Mystic Shrine whenever he needs an explanation for his absence. Jack and Laura leave separately, and Billy and Blanny discuss their mutual suspicions and get drunk. Jack, Laura, and Philip return to the apartment and Billy and Blanny are wrongly accused of being unfaithful. Laura storms out. Two days later, after having movers go to get the furniture, she returns to the apartment after becoming jealous, and discovers Blanny under Billy's bed. However, the maid (Conley) explains that this is all innocent and that Blanny was there looking for Jack. Jack overhears, and explains to Blanny that "Mystic Shrine" was his cover for going out to play poker. They reconcile. Laura, deciding to give up the promiscuous Philip, is also reconciled with Billy.
