This pseudo-(Cecil B. DeMille) farce starred Gloria Swanson, whose actual association with DeMille was still several months in the future. Swanson plays Patricia Reynolds, a lovely lass who spends her every waking hour fending off would-be seducers. Hoping for a little peace and quiet, Patricia pays a visit to her girlfriend Amy Powellson (Iris Ashton) at a posh summer resort. Our heroine's "restful" vacation turns out to be anything but, as she prevents fellow vacationer Jim Wheeler (Edward Peil) from committing suicide and rescues Amy from a potentially scandalous predicament. All ends happily when Jim --one of the few men in Patricia's life who has not tried to bed her at first sight -- asks the heroine to be his bride.
