This comedy-adventure marks one of the few instances where Flora Parker DeHaven starred in a film without her husband Carter DeHaven. Although wealthy Hermia Challoner (Mrs. DeHaven) is a member of the social set, she is restless and unhappy. She meets artist John Markham (Richard Sterling) through a friend, Countess Olga Tcherny (Vera Doria), and becomes intrigued by him. He decides to travel to Normandy dressed as a vagabond and, when her car breaks down, Hermia meets up with him. She likes his plan and asks if she can join him. He agrees and the two pseudo-vagabonds travel together. Olga, who is in love with Markham, becomes jealous and spreads nasty rumors all over New York society about Hermia.
