As a cheap programmer, this romantic mystery had little to recommend it. Star Herbert Rawlinson overacts as John D. Curtis, who mistakenly picks up an overcoat belonging to someone else. In its pocket he finds a marriage license and tracks down the girl, Hermoine Fane (Lillian Rich), whose name is on it. She explains that she had asked the overcoat's owner, Jean de Curtois (Jean De Briac), to wed her so that she could escape a marriage to Count de Mauriat, which was arranged by her father (Sidney De Grey). She needs to marry someone so that she can inherit a fortune, so Curtis quickly weds her. De Curtois was the victim of an assault, and Curtis tracks down the culprits. They just happen to be associated with the count, who turns out to be a phony. Hermoine's father acknowledges his mistake, and since his daughter and Curtis have fallen in love, he gives them his blessing.
