Divorcee Isabel Whitney (Kathlyn Williams) wants her eldest daughter, Eunice (Claire Adams), to marry Egbert Van Alyn (Crauford Kent), even though Jimmy Arnold (John Harron) has been her sweetheart since childhood. Eunice's younger sister, Arline (Pauline Garon), is a jazzy flapper who is creating her own troubles. She's loved by Danny Lawrence, a serious young man (Hal Cooley), but she prefers the company of the fast-and-loose Lester Howe (Maine Garey). In spite of her apparent frivolity, Arline is determined to save Eunice from marrying Van Alyn. Then she meets up with a stranger who informs her that he is her father, Richard Whitney (James Kirkwood), and that Isabel divorced him over a misunderstanding. Whitney and Lawrence discover that Van Alyn is an international crook and they dash to his home in time to keep him from stealing Isabel's jewels. Isabel reconciles with her husband, while her daughters wind up with the right mates.
