The father of footloose Cynthia Martin (May McAvoy) has decreed that, until Cynthia finds a husband her two sisters won't be allowed to go out with men. To help her sisters out, Cynthia pretends to be married to famous aviator Major John Smith (Conrad Nagel), who is far far away in Nicaragua. When she falls in love with Donald Woodward (Robert Agnew), Cynthia "kills off" her husband by claiming that he has fallen in battle. As expected, Major Smith shows up very much alive, and when he finds out what's been going on, he insists upon claiming his "bride." As also expected, this turn of events is hardly the end of the story!
