When prize fighter Johnny Duffey (Bert Lytell) breaks his hand, the doctor orders him to rest for three months before he returns to the ring. Vacationing in Craigmoor, he falls for society-debutante Constance Talbot (Virginia Valli) but later discovers she is engaged to the pompous Roy Van Twiller (Philo McCollough). When Constance's father (DeWitt Jennings) learns about Johnny, he befriends the boxer and conspires with Johnny to get rid of his prospective son-in-law. Without revealing his identity, Johnny is set up with Roy to drive him away from Constance. After his victory, Johnny is welcomed into the family by routing the rogue but the final blow re-injures his hand and prompts Johnny to enter the world of business.
