Beebe, a Belgian flower girl (Shirley Mason), falls in love with Victor Fleming (not the director -- although he was known as a ladies' man -- but Philo McCullough), a charismatic artist visiting from Paris. He finds her innocence appealing, but eventually he returns to Paris, promising to send for her. When she hears that he is heartsick, she believes he is really ill and heads to Paris. But when she arrives at his studio, she walks into a wild revelry with Victor at the center of it all, surrounded by a crowd of Latin Quarter lovelies. Beebe is horrified, but Victor gently explains that they are too different to be together. So she goes back to Belgium to wed Jeanot (Raymond McKee), a humble wood chopper who has loved her all along.
