Synopsis by Janiss Garza

In this action-packed silent feature, two rival rubber magnates, Edward P. Welston (Eric Mayne) and Judson Pendleton (Henry Hallam) are summering with their families at Palm Beach. Welston's son, George (George Walsh) and Pendleton's daughter, Eve (Alice Mann) are in love, much to their fathers' chagrin. Pendleton wants his daughter to marry Arthur Trask (Alan Edwards). Trask, however, is not the banker he claims to be, but a thief. He has been going though hotel suites and stealing guests' jewels. George finds someone breaking into Eve's room, but the hotel staff mistake him as the burglar and he is thrown in jail. His father has to pay a $600,000 bond to get him out -money he was planning to use for a business deal that would put him above Pendleton. Meanwhile, Pendleton's own money has been stolen. While out on bail, George nabs Trask and his confederates and brings them in before his own trial is supposed to start. He also saves Pendleton's money. The two rivals make up and join their business forces, and give their blessing to George and Eve.
