Indiana Stillwater (Alice Joyce) is the spoiled daughter of a Midwestern railroad magnate (Frank Sheridan). She falls in love with an Englishman with a long title, the Rt. Hon. Thurston Ralph Viscount Canning (Holmes E. Herbert). Thurston takes her home to Britain, where life is much stiffer and more traditional. Even though Indiana has difficulties adjusting, she is accepted by Thurston's mother (Ida Waterman), and she promises that her husband's word is law. When her mother (Marie Shotwell) and father come to town, Indiana defies Thurston's wishes by dining out with them on a Sunday -- something that is never done in his circle. Thurston angrily locks her out of the house when she comes home late, but the butler lets her in through a window. The next morning, the couple come to a new understanding and make up.
