This romantic comedy-drama, cast with silent era unknowns, was based on a Saturday Evening Post story by Sinclair Lewis. Henry Boltwood (George Pauncefort) is ordered to rest by his doctor. His daughter, Claire (Marjorie Seaman), decides to drive him west from Brooklyn to Glacier National Park. But the trip turns out to be anything but restful. When they reach a small town in Minnesota, they start having all kinds of car trouble -- the car gets stuck in the mud and then breaks down. But every time Claire and her father find themselves in a bind, garage owner Milt Daggett (Tom Douglas) is there to help. He even saves Claire from an escaped convict. In spite of her protests, Daggett insists on following Boltwood's roadster in his little car, until they reach the park. There, Claire's fiancé, Jeffrey Saxton (Henry Sell), is waiting. But when the convict resurfaces, Saxton turns out to be a coward while Daggett rescues Claire. Needless to say, Claire and Daggett end up together.
