When wealthy Rockwood dies, he wills his fortune to his four grown children, providing they're all married by a certain date. Failing that, the money will go to charity. Three of the Rockwood siblings are quick to find matches but Tom Rockwood (Thomas Meighan) is determined to wait for true love. At last he finds it with Louise Halliday (Lila Lee), but her guardian is Milo Bleech (John Sainpolis) who is the family lawyer. Bleech would benefit if the fortune went to charity, so he tries to sabotage the relationship. He is nearly successful, and Tom leaves for Europe. Also on the boat is the unhappy English sweetheart of his brother Dick (Robert Agnew). Louise is there to see the girl off, but isn't able to disembark before the ship leaves port. She and Tom meet up and straighten out their differences. Then, when Dick is discovered on board as a stowaway, a double wedding is in order. Meanwhile, the sisters back home quickly marry their beaus and the fortune remains in the family.
