This frivolous light comedy was perfect material for the lively Viola Dana. Dana plays Clytie Whitmore, who is about to be married to the very proper Cadbury Todd II (Gerald Pring). But at the last moment she decides against it, grabs the ring out of his hand, and tosses it at the shocked wedding guests. She escapes in the melee, getting a black eye during the madness, and meets handsome bandleader Ken Pauling (Bryant Washburn). She eludes those who are looking for her by going to the cafe where Pauling's orchestra is playing. Reporter Hamilton Peeke (Leon Barry), who works for a scandal sheet, find Clytie and senses a great story in the offing. When a dancer does not show up, Peeke urges the cafe's manager, Pennotti (Snitz Edwards), to feature Clytie instead. He does, and her mother (Eugenie Besserer) walks in on the act. The police raid the place, and Pauling helps Clytie to escape. In spite of the initial protests from her family, Clytie and Pauling ultimately wed.
