The sprightly Marguerite Clark stars in this light romantic drama. Letty Roberts (Clark) is a naive little country girl who attracts the attention of Arnold Boyd (Harold Lockwood), a wealthy man who has gone on a retreat from the city. They become friends, but then his younger brother Gerald (James Cooley) shows up. Gerald's interest in Letty is not so innocent, and to Arnold's dismay, she falls for his flirtatious ways. The couple elope, and Arnold chases after them. He drags the newly-wed Letty away from the altar and his brother, and thwarts all her efforts to get away. Ultimately he brings her to his Fifth Avenue mansion and introduces her as his wife. He asks her to go along with the ruse but doesn't tell her why. Eventually the truth comes out -- Gerald is already married, and his wedding with Letty was invalid. Letty comes to see beyond Arnold's stern exterior and falls in love with him. Jack Pickford (younger brother of the already wildly popular Mary Pickford) has a small role of a country boy.
