Hezekiah Dill (Stuart Holmes) is a bookkeeper in a flour mill. Old maid stenographer Violet Gaffney (Mabel Rutter) lusts after him, while he's in love with Sadie (Wanda Hawley), the daughter of his boss, Hector Sweet (Dan Mason). While working late one night, he catches two crooks cracking the safe and he locks them in. But when Hezekiah finds a roll of money on the floor, the temptation is too much for him and he heads for New York. He becomes involved in a scheme to swindle a wealthy old man by posing as a "lost" relative. Then -- he comes back to planet earth. It was all in his imagination, except for the crooks. They are caught and he becomes a hero in Sadie's eyes.
