Even though her father, William Brady was head of World Film, actress Alice Brady occasionally got stuck with a few clinkers; this picture is one of them. Sybil Drew (Alice Brady) is told by her aunt that before she inherits her fortune, she must work for a year -- in other words, "earn her spurs." So she goes to New York, where she encounters a handsome doctor, Ross Alger (handsome John Bowers). Ross, however, suspects she's a crook. After much difficulty she lands a job as a companion to the eccentric and elderly Miss Berwick (Eugenie Woodward). But she loses her position when Miss Berwick's ne'er-do-well nephew Paul (John Davidson) flirts with her. Sybil then proceeds to get herself in all kinds of trouble, from getting in an auto accident to being held hostage in a gambling den. Ross comes to her rescue with the police and finally discovers to his relief that she is not a crook.
