The film features Miller as a vacuum-cleaner salesman volunteering as an election agent to canvas on behalf of prospective candidate Arthur Gusty (Maltby). However, when he learns from nurse Sally Green (Bouchier) that Gusty is a crook who has been systematically siphoning off funds from the local orphanage into his own pocket, he withdraws his support and throws himself whole-heartedly behind the campaign of Gusty's honourable opponent Norman Prodder (Frederick Burtwell).
