Having been in show biz since infancy, Broadway chorus girl Beatrice (Virginia Brown Faire) regrets her lack of formal education. Upon unexpectedly falling heir to a huge sum of money, Beatrice decides to make up for lost time by enrolling in a fancy girl's school. Though many of her snooty classmates shun her, our heroine makes a valuable friend in the form of the daughter (Thelma Hill) of an oil-company executive (Bryant Washburn). Said executive falls in love with Beatrice, much to the dismay of wealthy widow Mrs. Garrett (Hedda Hopper), who's set her sights on the man. Mrs. Garrett stirs up animosity and bigotry against Beatrice, but in the end the heroine prevails, if for no other reason than she's the nicest character in the film.
