For a while, Mae Murray and her then-husband, director Robert Z. Leonard, were an unstoppable team. They had their own production company, and this comedy-drama followed in the wake of the massively successful Peacock Alley. Murray plays Dolores de Lisa, the Spanish-American daughter of the aristocratic Eduardo de Lisa (Charles Lane). Dolores's New York upbringing has turned her into a carefree flapper, and when her old world aunt, the Marquesa de Lisa (Emily Fitzroy), comes to visit, she insists on taking the girl back to Spain to become a lady. But Dolores continues her playful ways and becomes infatuated with toreador Carrita (Robert W. Frazer), even though she has a fiancé, Ralph Kellogg (Vincent Coleman), back in the States. By the time Kellogg arrives in Spain, with Dolores's father and drunken brother, Carlos (Creighton Hale), Dolores has run off to the bullfights. While the men are searching for her, they get into a lot of trouble, and Dolores has to help save them. After all the difficulty she has caused, Dolores decides to return to Kellogg and lead a more sedate life.
