Stage luminary Madge Kennedy stars in this early flapper comedy as a girl forced to marry an unworthy young man in order for her greedy relatives to assume control over her finances. Escaping to New York, Miriam Smith changes her name to Kittie Swasher, takes up with a couple of high-living bohemians, and falls in love with peppy Miles Sprague (Joe King). The greedy relatives, meanwhile, charge her with being a runaway and have the police return her to home and hearth. Locked up in her room, Kittie/Miriam is visited by her erstwhile fiancé (Leon Gendron), who refuses to wait until the wedding night. She is rescued in the proverbial nick of time by Miles and her New York friends.
