Rex Rowland (Bryant Washburn) is an American who is visiting London with his father (George Foley). When he meets Lady Emily, a distressed but pretty young girl (Joan Morgan), he decides to stay behind and help her. Emily's aunt, the Duchess (Saba Raleigh), is trying to force her into an unwanted marriage with a Count (Gibb McLaughlin). Rex spirits her away in a car he has commandeered. The Duchess and the Count chase Rex and Emily all over London, including a pursuit by "motor canoe" down the Thames. Emily and Rex manage to escape long enough to be married at a small church, but when they get back to the hotel, the Duchess shows up and takes her niece away. Rex, depressed that his efforts have been for naught, wires his father for money to return home. When he boards the ship, he finds Emily waiting for him in his cabin. This lively adventure was shot on location in London.
