As described in a film magazine,[4] Mary Barber (Daniels) returns to her birthplace as Rita Rooke, an actress, and finds her former sweetheart Willoughby Finch engaged and about to be married to a Miss Farringdon (Woods). She telephones Finch that she is in town and will call on him at 4 p.m. A rehearsal of the wedding ceremony is scheduled for 5 o'clock. A reporter is called in to assist Finch out of his dilemma. He suggests getting someone to pose as Finch's sweetheart to get him out of difficulty. The reporter gets the actress to dress as a vamp and appear on the scene. Complications follow when Mary mistakes the rehearsal for the wedding ceremony. The engagement between Molly Farringdon and Finch is broken. Then when she attempts to straighten things out, Mary is found at Finch's studio by Molly. Eventually explanations are made to clear things up.
