After her father's death, Mary Willard (Blanche Sweet) successfully takes charge of his business. Her only problem is the machinations of a stock market player, Harvey Judson (Mahlon Hamilton). To protect her stockholders, she has him kidnapped and taken to the North woods. Try as he might, he can't seem to either bribe or fight his way out of his confinement. When he discovers that Mary has been the cause of his dilemma, he accuses her of trying to ruin him. Their argument continues in a car that wrecks on the way to the railroad station. When they finally get there, they are told that the government has taken possession of their property. Somewhere along the way, these two fierce rivals have fallen in love, and they decide that in the future, they will fight their battles together. A very young Boris Karloff has a small role.
