Sheridan Redpath, known as Sherry (Pat O'Malley), is the last of his family and has inherited a fortune. However, he has partied it away, and now he is broke, so he swears off drinking and searches for a job. Along the way, he meets Morna O'Brien (Lillian Hell), who has run away from her grandmother. He convinces her to return home, and shortly afterward, he lands a job as bodyguard to the town's richest man. Sherry distinguishes himself, first by keeping the man, who is sleepwalking, from killing his wife, and then capturing a burglar. His boss invites him to become a business partner, and Morna proposes marriage, it being leap year. The story to this picture was written by George Barr McCutcheon, a popular author of the day who wrote such books as Beverly of Graustark and Brewster's Millions.
