Buster Keaton collides head first with unholy matrimony in this hilarious two-reel comedy. A burly Irishwoman (Kate Price) thinks Buster has broken a window and has him brought before a judge -- who is Polish and can't speak English! The judge thinks the two are engaged and immediately marries them. The delighted woman drags Buster to her home and introduces him to her four huge brothers and their spindly father. The whole family abuses Buster until they come to believe -- quite mistakenly -- that he is due a huge inheritance; they then treat him with warmth and consideration. They all relocate to a ritzy penthouse only to learn that Buster has no income coming in. The resulting chaos leads to a wild chase and ends with Buster on a train headed for America's divorce capital, Reno, NV.
