After being raised in England, Ann Church (Laura La Plante) sails back to her parents in Bombay. She meets Major Anthony Seymour, a British officer (Eugene O'Brien), and falls for him. Years before, Seymour had fallen in love with Ann's mother (Hedda Hopper), not realizing she was married. The memories hurt, so he avoids Ann until Gilchrist (Jean Hersholt) puts her in a compromising situation. To save her, Seymour proposes and Ann accepts. Back home in India, however, the match causes problems because Mrs. Church, her pride damaged, asks that the marriage be delayed. Gilchrist tries to ruin Ann's romance by implying that Seymour only wants to marry her to remain close to her mother. Ann decides to go back to England, but Mrs. Church enlists the help of Seymour, who gives Gilchrist the thrashing he deserves. Gilchrist admits he was lying, and Ann reunites with Seymour. A side note: Star Laura La Plante married director William Seiter a year after making this picture with him. This romance was based on the popular novel Ann's an Idiot by Pamela Wynne.
