When John Webster, a leader in high finance, dies, he leaves the Webster Trust Company to his daughter Janice (Dorothy Gish). The bank directors are her guardians, and they all want to get control of the holdings. One, Ethan Dexter (Sam deGrasse), courts Janice himself, while another, Henry Jarvis (Fred Warren), sends his son Winfield (Milton Schumann) to romance the girl. While they're all plotting, Steven Peabody (Frank Bennett) a lowly bank clerk, wins Janice's heart. The guardians attempt to foil their union, but Janice has already outwitted them. Gish's charismatic comic persona shines through in this lively little film.
