Lord and Lady Bazelhurst (Arthur Hoyt and Katherine Adams respectively) own an estate in the Adirondacks next door to wealthy American Randolph Shaw (Jack Livingston). Lord Bazelhurst wants Shaw's property, even if he has to use underhanded means to get it. Appalled by his methods, Lord Bazelhurst's sister Penelope (Peggy Hyland) runs off to Shaw's estate. There -- in the midst of a Hatfield-McCoy-type feud, only amongst the very rich -- she finds love with the resourceful American. This film, which had both light comedy and melodramatic elements to it, was based on a book of the same name by author George Barr McCutcheon.
