In this comedy drama, Charles Ray plays sophomore John Adams, who is working his way through college. Bessie Barriscale is the orphan Jane who works as a drudge at the boarding house where John lives. He doesn't pay much attention to Jane, but one day an elderly photographer dresses her up, takes some pictures and voila! She wins first prize in the college beauty contest. The photographer adopts her and John finally wakes up and falls in love with her. Somehow, the studio managed to stretch this thin plot over five reels. The completed film was no asset to either of its stars.
