A wealthy, but sad young woman falls in love with an impoverished fellow in this bittersweet romance. While her father is only concerned with her happiness, her uncle strongly objects to the match as he wants her to marry into royalty. When the father's bank is on the verge of collapsing, he asks his brother for help, but he only will if his niece will marry a prince. The dutiful daughter agrees to it. Before she does, her parents arrange for her to meet her true love again. Her father then flies back to meet his brother, but instead ends up crashing his plane so his daughter can receive his insurance policy and marry the man she really loves.
