Directed by silent screen action hero Charles Hutchison, this independently produced comedy-drama starred Mrs. Hutchison, aka Edith Thornton, as a spoiled rich girl falling in love with her straitlaced guardian. Leaving on an extended business trip, wealthy lawyer Godfrey Jackson (George Fawcett) appoints Harley Norcross (Lou Tellegen), a junior partner in his law firm, to oversee the education of his unruly daughter Dorothy (Thornton). When Dorothy overhears Norcross making a disparaging remark about her, the girl vows vengeance. Forbidden to drive an automobile, attend tea dances or to see her young suitor William (Eddie Phillips), Dorothy does all those things just to spite Norcross. The situation comes to a head when Dorothy cons her guardian into her car and then proceeds to break all existing traffic laws. They crash and Dorothy declares her love for Norcross, whom she mistakenly believes to be unconscious.
