In this simple little comedy feature, June Caprice is Eloise Jackson, the extravagant and very wealthy ward of Judge Stafford (George Bunny). Eloise throws all her money away on parties and friends, and when Harvey Greyson, a struggling young Washington Square author (Bernard Thornton) happens along, she decides to back him. To teach her a lesson, the judge makes it appear that Eloise has gone bankrupt. Without the lure of her fortune, all her friends desert her, with the exception of Greyson. In fact, he does everything he can to find her more money. By the time the judge reveals his trick, it doesn't really matter because Eloise has fallen in love with Greyson and he has gotten lucrative publishing offers for his work.
