This cross between Cinderella and Peg O' My Heart stars Wanda Hawley. Penniless orphan Ruth Sheldon (Hawley) moves in with her ambitious aunt, Julia Nast (Sylvia Aston), and her daughter, Hattie (Mae Busch). They treat her like a drudge instead of a relative. The catch of the town is banker Thomas Morgan (Warner Baxter), and Ruth wins him by reminding him of his beloved mother. But Julia catches onto this and insists that Ruth give him up so that he will marry Hattie. Ruth obliges by pretending to be a wanton jazz baby at a party. But the next day, Morgan discovers that it was all an act, and that she really is the old-fashioned girl he loved in the first place.
