Mildred Harris was billing herself under the stage name Mrs. Charles Chaplin during the time she starred in this Lois Weber-directed drama. Mr. and Mrs. Rankin (William Critgenden and Lydia Knott) scrimp so they can send their daughter, Millicent (Harris), to a posh girls' school. One of the friends she makes at the school is Beatrice Deering (Helen Yoder), who comes from a very wealthy family. Millicent goes to visit Beatrice with dreams of finding a rich and handsome young man. But the one she meets, Elmer Lacy (Frank Elliott), is having an affair with Beatrice's mother (Clarissa Selwynne). Lacy takes time off from his romance with Mrs. Deering to pay some attention to Millicent, and she comes close to compromising herself. When Mr. Deering (John Cossar) is about to discover his wife's affair, Millicent saves the marriage by stepping into his wife's place. She returns back to her country home a whole lot wiser, and decides to settle down with the modest, down-to-earth sweetheart she left behind.
