Laura La Plante stars in this light comedy, directed by her future husband, William Seiter (the couple were wed in 1927 and divorced in 1933). Ann Barton (La Plante) is working at a cigar store when she is adopted by her aunt, Margaret Wyndham (Hedda Hopper). Margaret moves Ann to New York with the intention of introducing her into her society circle. She's horrified to discover that her pretty niece has terrible manners, and, worse yet, is engaged to crude cigar salesman James McDonald (Pat O'Malley). She separates the couple by sending Ann to finishing school. Ann, however, does not take this treatment -- of her or her boyfriend -- lightly, so she gets even with her aunt by behaving scandalously in front of her friends. Although it's all an act, it winds up compromising both Ann and Margaret. Eventually, Ann comes to an understanding with her aunt and is reunited with McDonald, who has learned some manners himself.
