A famous explorer, Captain Spaulding, returns from his expedition to Africa to find a party being thrown in his honour by Mrs Rittenhouse, a wealthy widow. He finds that at this party R.W. Chandler has chosen to unvail his newly bought Beaugard painting. This painting is worth a fortune. Two women conspire to steal this painting on the night it is unvailed. A couple also want to steal the painting, to place the man's copy in its place in order to make him a reputation as an artist.
