Stan Laurel (an Englishman by birth) makes an improbable Asian in this two-reel Joe Rock comedy. As the new baby in the family, Laurel is shown in a high chair and playing with a ball. His big brother is jealous of all the attention the new baby is getting, so he dumps him in a pile of dirty clothes, which is taken to a Chinese laundry. He's found by the laundry's employees, who take him in and raise him. When he grows up he goes to work in the laundry himself. Sum Sap, as he is known, incurs the wrath of a Tong leader and is in fear of his life. After eluding danger he manages to get the best of his foes and marry his Chinese girlfriend (Julie Leonard). Just then, his real parents finally track him down and Sum Sap discovers that he is wealthy.
