Given the title, the star -- the delightful Mae Marsh -- and the fact that one of her co-stars is a dog, there's not much else that needs to be said about this too-cute picture. But for what it's worth, here's the story: Cecelia Carne (Marsh) moves into a small cabin in the woods with her beloved bulldog and keeps to herself as much as possible. But one day she meets Saxon Graves (Charles Meredith), a neighbor's brother, and he finds out she is an artist. Judge Carteret (Herbert Prior), her landlord, asks her to decorate his home and through this job, she hears that he is working on a case involving the mysterious Giron (Tully Marshall). Giron, it turns out, is her father, a devious character from whom she has been hiding. He shows up but eventually he shoots himself and Cecelia is able to relax and have a romance with Graves. This picture was adapted from the novel, The Girl Who Lived in the Woods, by Marjorie Benton Cooke.
