Popular silent light comedian stars in this riotous comedy about a pickle salesman involved in a South American revolution. Returning to the family pickle business in Florida after working his way through college as a short order cook, Tommy Perkins (Charles Hines) successfully launches "Perkins' Stuffed Pickles." Planning to overthrow the government of Esquasado, General Bannon (Henry West) and his equally unsavory partner Alonzo Lopez (Bradley Barker) purchase a shipment of 5,000 pickles, which they then stuff with ammunition. Tommy, who has fallen for the general's innocent daughter, Rose (Sigrid Holmquist), is on to the scheme, however, and deftly switches the contraband with pickles stuffed with cheese. All hell breaks lose in Esquasado, but Tommy, masquerading as a revolutionary general, saves both the day and his pickle company.
