Circus bareback rider Pat (Clara Bow) loves tightrope walker Larry, who is infatuated with his partner Zara, who in turn loves someone else.
When Pat tells Larry of Zara’s duplicity he is injured in a fall from the wire and takes to drink. To help him return to the circus and regain his confidence Pat works with him as a clown in a comic act. To Pat's dismay, however, he again falls under Zara’s spell.
Eventually Larry realises he loves Pat.
