This light comedy was the film debut of English stage actress Teddy Gerard. She plays Margot, a girl who has had a primitive upbringing in the mountains. Her simple world is turned upside down by the arrival of Mrs. Georgia Case (Eleanor Hancock), her daughter Elsie (Lillian Tucker), and the wealthy, handsome Divvy Bates (Charles Meredith). The ambitious Mrs. Case is determined that Elsie will marry well, and she is hoping that her time in the mountains with Divvy will result in a proposal. But when Divvy meets Margot, his attention is diverted. In turn, Margot falls completely for Divvy, much to Elsie's annoyance. To get this rival out of the way, she makes sure that Margot is set adrift in a canoe without a paddle. But Divvy comes to her rescue, saving her just as the canoe goes over the rapids. This unites the pair even more tightly, and Elsie loses out.
