Hazel Daly finds herself torn between two men -- and not necessarily wanting either of them -- in this mildly amusing comedy. Although Betty Hall (Daly) comes from a wealthy family, she's anything but well-behaved -- she is sent to a boarding school and her antics get her expelled in short order. When she gets home, her parents insist that she find a husband. Betty will have none of it, and insists that she will marry only when she finds her ideal man. Franklyn Winters (Harry Hilliard), the young man her parents have chosen, is not her idea of what she wants, even though he becomes a partner in her father's business and does everything he can to win her over. Betty's sister invites popular author Roy Harper (Sydney Ainsworth) to their home. When Betty is thrown from her horse, he picks her up and carries her to his home. Winters, believing that Harper has ulterior motives, gets into a fist fight with him. Betty is not impressed by this. Winters, finally fed up with her, enters an officers' training school. At this late date, Betty finally decides that he's the man for her after all, and boards the train which is taking him away.
