Sisters Marian and Gwendolyn Beaumont (Dorothy Fairchild and Frances Nelson) would be ideal candidates for high society, but for a single character flaw. It seems that the girls' father was a compulsive gambler and that Marian and Gwendolyn have both inherited their dad's weakness. Our heroines try to overcome this stigma, but it ain't easy. It helps, however, that handsome Captain Dorian March (Robert Warwick) falls in love with one of the girls. The film moves swiftly to an incongruous but entertaining conclusion involving sinister villains and a torpedoed motorboat.
