Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Country lass Patsy Ruth Miller is swept off her feet by citified actor Clive Brook when the latter's touring troupe takes up residence in the hotel run by Miller's pop. Both lovestruck and stagestruck, our heroine follows Brook to New York, where she ends up getting a job as a chorus girl. She tries desperately to get in touch with Brook, but he acts as if he doesn't even know she's alive. Thanks to a lucky break, Miller becomes the star of the show in which she is appearing, whereupon Brook finally acknowledges her existence. This time, however, the girl gives Brook the cold shoulder then turns her back on New York and heads home (hence the title). Brook follows her on the train, setting the stage for a tender reconciliation. Among the heroine's chorine pals is a young Myrna Loy, still several years away from full stardom.
