Bebe Daniels stars in this action-packed comedy -- one of Edward Sutherland's first directoral efforts. Susan Van Dusen (Daniels) is bored by her society life and craves excitement. Her father (Henry Stephenson), however, wants her to settle down and marry one of the sons of his friend Chauncey Waterbury (Warren Cook). Since the elder brother has disappeared to do research for a novel, Van Dusen tries to team Susan up with the other young man, Eustace (Russell Medcroft). Eustace turns out to be a wimp, so Susan runs away and becomes a private detective. Along the way, she meets a chauffeur who is really Tod, the elder Waterbury son, posing under an assumed name (Rod LaRocque). The chauffeur convinces Susan to help him locate "Tod Waterbury" and leads her on various escapades -- all of which are meant to dampen her taste for adventure. In the end, of course, she falls for Tod and they wind up together.
