Gawky American teenager Daphne Carroll (Edith Roberts) is shipped off to an expensive education in Paris. By the time she returns, Daphne has metamorphosed into a sleek, poised fashion plate. She has also picked up a few "radical" notions about love and fidelity, which embarrass her hometown sweetheart, politician Curtis Lee (Harland Tucker). Worried that Daphne might hurt his chances at re-election, Curtis begins neglecting her. She gets even by crashing one of Curtis' dinner parties, posing as escaped lunatic Sally Long (Louise Carver). Worried about Daphne's bizarre behavior, Curtis puts her under the care of a nurse -- who turns out to be the real Sally Long. Rescued from a grisly fate, Daphne promises to behave more conservatively in the future -- but one detects a gleam in her pretty blue eyes.
