This lightweight comedy-drama had barely enough plot to fill its five reels. Peggy Dean (Marguerite de la Motte) is at boarding school when she gets a letter from her two maiden aunts, Abigail (Jane Keckly) and Saline Julia Calhoun), inviting her to stay with them. Peggy knows that they are concerned that their niece has inherited the frivolous ways of her actress mother, so decides to put up a front -- she becomes so annoyingly prim and proper that she hopes it will drive her relatives up a wall. But then she falls for a young lawyer, James Landon (Ralph Graves), and begins living a double life -- aspiring missionary by day and healthy young flapper by night. She bets Landon's father (George Fawcett) that she will make his son fall in love with her. Peggy is successful -- as a matter of fact she falls for him, too -- but the romance is almost ruined when James finds her in the arms of another man. What he doesn't know is that it is Peggy's brother (J. Frank Glendon). Finally everything is cleared up and Peggy wins her man.
