Serial star Pearl White was near the end of her misguided attempt to become a serious actress when she made this commonplace drama. John Miles (Robert Elliot) is a self-made millionaire who doesn't fit in with society because he lacks a pedigree. This matters not one bit to Ruth Hamilton (White), who lives in the mansion next door. Her father, Warren Hamilton (Charles MacKay), however, does care very much, and he thoroughly disapproves of the young people's friendship. When he won't allow Ruth to invite Miles to her masquerade ball, she sneaks over to his home to show off her costume. Her secret visit has been observed by a jealous suitor, Bill Barton (Macey Harlam), who blabs to her father. It turns out that old money or no, Hamilton is about to go into bankruptcy, and Miles is the one who bails him out. When snobby old pa realizes that Miles is a good egg after all, he allows him to marry Ruth.
