Franklyn Starr, a talented and wealthy young musician suffers a double misfortune in the sudden loss of his hearing and in the death of his mother to whom he is deeply attached. His affliction transforms his character and losing his generous, joyous nature Starr becomes a misanthrope, gloomy and despondent.

Music, his one joy, is taken from him, and deeply sensitive about his deafness, Starr retires to an out-of-the-way spot in the country, his sole companion being his faithful servant, Spring.. There he lives the life of a hermit. One day, wandering forth in one of his blackest moods, unable to hear the warning cries of the workmen, he is desperately injured in the explosion of a charge of dynamite. Marjorie Blair, a young society woman, who is riding nearby comes to his rescue, and on his recovery the inevitable happens, Starr falls in love with Marjorie, and Marjorie won by Starr's rich personality, returns his love notwithstanding his deafness.

Soon afterward Starr marries Marjorie and once more the happiness and serenity of former days returns to him. Just when the future seems rosiest, however, Bobby Delorme, a characterless relative of Starr's taking advantage of a past innocent flirtation with Marjorie, creates a situation which leads Starr to believe that Marjorie is unfaithful to him. Again he becomes embittered, but in the end he learns that he has been unjust to his wife and this discovery, following close on the recovery of his lost hearing, fills him once more with the joy and zest of living.
