American chemist Ned Faraday marries a German entertainer and starts a family. However, he becomes poisoned with radium and needs an expensive treatment in Germany to have any chance at being cured. Wife Helen returns to night club work to attempt to raise the money and becomes well-known as the Blonde Venus. In an effort to get enough money sooner, she prostitutes herself to millionaire Nick Townsend. While Ned is away in Europe, she continues with Nick but when Ned returns cured, he discovers her infidelity. Now Ned despises Helen so she grabs son Johnny and lives on the run, just one step ahead of the Missing Persons Bureau.
