Based upon a review in a film magazine,[4] Jane Neill (Martin) goes to work for irritable old dramatist David Lyman (Aitken), who is annoyed by the extravagance of his spendthrift nephew Monty Lyman (Welch). Monty throws a ball at his uncle's home while Jane is there at work, and she sees him under favorable circumstances and comes to idealize him. When the playwright dies, Jane discovers that he has left his vast property to her because of her assistance in his last great work. Believing through her infatuated eyes that Monty is the rightful heir, she sets out to reform him before turning over the property to him.
