In this drama, an English doctor returns from the US with his fiancee and finds himself forced to choose between the young woman he loves and his overbearing, disapproving mother, whom he also loves. He marries the girl despite his mother's loud protestations. When she learns the girl has a fragile heart, the mother insists they move in with her. One day the mother accidentally gives her daughter-in-law the wrong medication and the hapless bride nearly dies. Fortunately, the doctor saves his wife; he then accuses his mother of attempted murder. Later it's discovered that the mix-up was the maid's fault. Things settle down as the three realize they need to call a truce. Peace descends upon their lives.
