This farce starring Douglas MacLean was based on an old musical comedy by Henry Blossom, Jr. and Alfred G. Robyn. The wealthy Dudley Ainsworth (MacLean) is bored with life, and when he has an attack of "nerves," his doctor suggests that he needs some excitement in his life. Ainsworth doesn't think anything can thrill him so his pal Jack Morrell (Arthur Stuart Hull) decides to help him out. He gets Ainsworth a job which requires him to travel to South America. On the boat he meets pretty Margarite (Patsy Ruth Miller) and becomes entangled in her problems. He winds up having to pose as the American Consul to a Latin American country. Before he discovers it was all a plot by his friends to show him some adventure, he has already called out the U.S. fleet.
