Hungry artist Victor runs into problems when his car stops working right outside of Paris, so his fiancée Claudette gets a ride from a rich aristocrat, a scandalous playboy. Victor is angry with the acceptance of the ride, yet naive Claudette is gracious to the aristocrat for his kindness. Claudette accepts an invitation to his party, where young women meet rich older men. Victor is onto the aristocrat, for he does not trust him and hits the aristocrat, taking Claudette with him. The aristocrat has fallen hard for Claudette and wants to make her his. He tries to captivate her but does not want to ruin her innocence. To accommodate her, he purchases paintings for Victor under the alias of Jones. Victor soon realizes it is the aristocrat and assaults him again. Claudette takes care of the aristocrat, while Victor is in jail and wants nothing to do with Victor. Since Claudette is going to marry the aristocrat, he lets Victor go free. Victor does not give up and meets Claudette in her new country home given to her by the aristocrat as a wedding present. The aristocrat hears a conversation between the two and requests for Claudette not to marry him, for he wants her to be happy. The Aristocrat goes back to his normal ways with women.
