Shoe clerk Andy Whittaker (George Lewis) decides to quit his job when a bank unexpectedly extends him $10,000 in credit. This windfall was arranged by Andy's uncle, who wants to see how the boy will behave with his newly-found riches. Alas, our hero inadvertently manages to offend the uncle several times, whereupon the latter tries to withdraw the boy's credit. By this time, however, Andy has invested his money in a shoe store, thus Uncle is legally prevented from doing anything for three months. The rest of the film details Andy's efforts to turn his store into a success before his uncle is able to call in his loan -- and, of course, occasionally pauses for a romantic interlude between Andy and heroine June Allen (Marion Nixon).
