Jack Burkshaw (Carlyle Blackwell, who also directed) returns home from the West to discover that his mother (Kate Lester) has married a widower, Eugene Alston (Charles Duncan). Alston has two grown children, pretty Marion (Evelyn Greeley) and roguish Jerry (William Sherwood). While Jack falls in love with Marion, Jerry takes advantage of Barbara Manning (Muriel Ostriche), a young stenographer, then neglects her in favor of an actress. Jack uses sneaky and sometimes humorous means to make Jerry see the error of his ways, while winning Marion's heart at the same time.
