When Agatha Kent (Justine Johnstone) inherits a Southern estate, she doesn't have the funds to keep it up, so she advertises for boarders. One of the responses comes from Burton Forbes (Harrison Ford), who is blind. He believes the landlady is Agatha's great-aunt, who owned it when he was a child. So for his benefit, Agatha pretends to be the old lady (although one wonders why she goes to the trouble of dressing like her, since he can't see). She also doubles as the maid, in disguise. Forbes' friend, Warren (James Harrison) comes to visit and falls for the maid; meanwhile, Agatha finds herself falling in love with Forbes, even though she tries to convince his fiancee to stick by him. Forbes sight returns, but he doesn't tell Agatha and watches her various costume changes with amusement. Finally, when his fiancee shows up and is nasty to Agatha, he reveals that he can see. Forced to make a choice between the two young ladies, Forbes, of course, chooses Agatha.
