This light romantic comedy was based on Miles Brewster and the Super-Sex by Frank R. Adams. Young Miles Brewster Higgins (Robert Gordon) feels that life has turned against him. His girl, Irene Hayes (Charlotte Pierce), has become infatuated with a car salesman, his father (Tully Marshall) complains about the quality of his work in the lumber yard, and there's no way he can live up to the high standards of his grandmother (Gertrude Claire). When his cousin Roy (Albert MacQuarries) shows up and offers to sell him some oil stock, Miles takes him up on the offer and plunks down his life savings. The oil well is a gusher and the young man suddenly finds himself rich. He decides to let all the doubters around him have it, starting with Irene who he plans to woo and then jilt. But when he hears that his money went towards a different oil well and, instead of being wealthy, he is deeply in debt, he decides to run away to South America.
