As the country heads for the Great Depression in 1929, Tom and Ruth Holmes (Richard Barthelmess and Loretta Young) manage to cope with Tom's morphine addiction that he got while recuperating from an injury suffered during World War I. Tom is treated and released from an asylum and finds work at a laundry. He becomes friends with Max Brinker (Robert Barrat) who has invented a washing machine, and they form a partnership. Later, the machines put Tom and his coworkers out of business, which results in a riot during which Ruth is killed. By story's end, Tom has donated his fortune from the washing machine business to Mary (Aline MacMahon) so that she can feed the hungry during the Depression, and Tom is out roaming the streets looking for a job.
