This routine drama of confused identities stars Alma Rubens. Heiress Diane Westfall (Rubens) is the daughter of a Seminole Indian woman, and she has a great love for the outdoors. To her relatives' consternation, she heads for the woods in a green van and lives out in nature. Her cousin, Carl Granberry (Lamar Johnstone), is only entitled to a fraction of what Diane is getting, and when he hears she may be heir to the throne of Houdania, he becomes very interested in getting this established. If Diane is of royal stock, it means she is not due the Westfall fortune after all, and Granberry will get the full amount. But there are difficulties in Houdania -- Prince Ronador (Wedgwood Nowell) wants to make sure that Diane doesn't come between him and the throne. Eventually it is discovered that Diane isn't royalty, and that she really is entitled to her fortune. She ends the film happily with her sweetheart, Philip Poynter (Nigel Barrie).
