It was hard for director Thomas N. Heffron to flesh out this skimpy storyline into feature length material. Polly Heath (Wanda Hawley) is a romantic young girl who can't cope with Dick Barton, her prosaic Wall Street fiancé (William Boyd). She hands him back his engagement ring, which upsets her Aunt Emily (Adele Farrington) to no end. Aunt Emily locks Polly in her room, but she escapes and heads for Greenwich Village where she finds that a pal has hooked up with an artist's colony. Everyone wears sandals, Grecian-style togas and spouts a lot of poetic nonsense. Polly finds all this exciting, especially the colony's one male member, poet Paul Lamont (William P. Carleton). All the girls love Lamont, and Polly falls especially hard until she discovers that there is also a Mrs. Lamont (Ethel Wales), not to mention two Lamont kiddies (Junior Coughlan and Robert Kelly). Wisely, when Barton tracks her down, she is more than happy to go back to him.
