Uncle Peter (Joseph J.Dowling) travels from the West to Wall Street at the insistence of his grandchildren Psyche (Betty Brice) and Percival (Niles Welch). Peter would rather stay at home to oversee his business ventures but is convinced that New York and stock market speculation could prove fortuitous. Percival falls for Avice Milbrey (Claire Adams), Psyche meets and falls for the speculation nobleman Lord Mauburn (Harry Holland), and everyone benefits from the tips given by market analyst Rolou Shepeir (Robert McKim). Highlights include a chorus-girl dinner party and a fight between the hero and his adversary. The villain is doused in gasoline at the end of the melee. When everyone makes money on the market, the family heads West and begins to plan a double wedding.
