Barbara (Olive Tell) has grown tired of the endless chores at her mother's boarding house so she decides to get rid of her penniless sweetheart and marry a rich young man. Unfortunately he loses his wealth shortly after the wedding, then he dumps Barbara when he catches her flirting with an elderly man -- no matter that she was only doing it to get a stock tip. So she strikes out on her own and opens up a millinery shop. It goes under and she decides that maybe her place is with her ex-husband after all. This drab feature was based on a novel, Nothing a Year, by Charles Belmont Davis.
