Produced, directed and written by Edgar Jones, this strange Northwest melodrama featured a wilderness dweller (Henry Van Bousen) whose new wife, Nola Warburton (Edna May Sperl) is devoid of social graces and refinement. A friend, Grant Hamilton (Jones), "kidnaps" the girl and together with a chaperone instructs her in deportment. Mystified by a series of notes describing his wife's improvements, Henry Warburton (Henry Van Bousen) begins a desperate search that leads nowhere. In a final letter, Henry is notified that he has become a father. A year later, Warburton travels to New York to claim an inheritance and is reunited with Nola who is now ready to become the perfect consort for her newly rich husband.
