Nan Everard (Helene Chadwick) is a willful young lady, but when her father (George Backus) finds himself in dire financial straits, she agrees to marry wealthy Peter Craddock (Holmes Herbert), who she does not love. When Craddock has to go to South America, Nan reluctantly agrees to go with him, but their auto wrecks. Because she is injured, she gets to stay home and she uses this opportunity to renew her friendship with childhood pal, Jerry Lister (Allan Simpson). After that, she refuses to go to South America at all. When Craddock returns, he finds Nan and Lister together. He insists that she stop seeing the interloper and she refuses; in fact, she runs off to a hunting lodge with Lister in the hopes that Craddock will divorce her. Instead, he shows up at the lodge, gives Lister a sound beating, and finally, through his brute force, wins Nan's love.
