Dick Farrington (Arthur Ashley) is the son of an English nobleman and an American mother. His father sends him on a visit to the States where he meets Betty Winthrop (Dorothy Green), a young society girl who swears she would rather marry an American burglar than an English lord. Dick's efforts to prove himself worthy of Betty's love wind up taking him to a logging camp, where he foils a bombing plot. Along the way he does get accused of burglary and eventually wins Betty's heart. Unfortunately, what could have been a charming little programmer was marred by poor directing and bad casting choices.
