Gold-digging Broadway chorus girl Marguerite de la Motte sets her sights on every wealthy bachelor within a 100-mile radius. She changes her tactics when the newspapers announce a search for the heir to a $250,000 fortune. Posing as the long-missing heiress, De la Motte manages to pull off the masquerade, only to discover that one of the conditions of the will requires her to spend one year as a resident in a tiny one-horse town. During her enforced stay, the heroine decides to reform her high-kickin' ways when she falls in love with local boy Donald Keith, but the villain of the piece shows up at an inopportune moment, threatening to expose the girl as a fraud unless he gets a chunk of the money. All turns out OK when it develops that Keith, rather than De la Motte, is the actual heir.
