Having grown up under the thumbs of her two maiden aunts, 17-year-old Joan Hastings (Marceline Day) has never had a boyfriend. This seems due to change when Joan meets handsome garage mechanic Bill (Rex Lease), but their budding romance is squashed by the overbearing aunties. Fed up with being treated like a hothouse orchid, Joan runs off to San Francisco, where she becomes a successful model with the help of wealthy Curtis Barstow (Owen Moore). Joan assumes that Barstow's interest in her is entirely platonic, but he proves otherwise when he gets her alone in his mountain cabin. Fortunately, faithful Bill happens to be strolling by at just the right moment to rescue Joan from her would-be seducer. This sublimely predictable yarn was based on a serialized magazine story by Hazel Livingston.
