As described in a film magazine, Roscoe Paine (Crane), a wealthy young man with no job and little ambition who lives with his invalid mother (Barry) in a small fishing village, owns a lane leading to the shore which skirts the wealthy James Colton (Truesdale) property. Debutante Mabel Colton (Castle) and her father James and her mother (Fitzroy) are newly arrived to the village, and the passing of the fish carts on the lane annoys Mrs. Colton. The father thereupon tries to purchase the lane, but Roscoe refuses to close it to his friends and neighbors. Roscoe and Mabel become friends after he saves her from a runaway horse. Victor Carver (Roscoe), a suitor for Mabel's hand, attempts to ruin her father in a stock deal, but Roscoe engineers a counter stock deal during the illness of James, which saves his fortune. Roscoe also sells the lane to James Colton to raise money to save a his friend George Davis (Pauncefort), a cashier at the local bank, from disgrace. The townspeople want to run Roscoe out of town until the truth is known and he is vindicated by Mabel and her father. Roscoe gets a good job in her father's offices, and he and Mabel get engaged.
