As described in a film magazine,[4] very natural and impulsive Felicia Day (Binney), kept by a watchful governess and vigilant grandfather within walls that surround her home, makes the acquaintance of but one boy, Dudley Hamilt (La Rocque), who sings in the choir of the church next door. Years pass and he returns as a young man, again to meet Felicia over the garden wall, at which time they kiss impulsively only to be separated by her grandparent. Years pass and her grandparent dies, so she returns as an old fashioned maiden to the city. Forced to make her living by sewing, she has many adventures but is always trying to locate her ideal, Dudley. He, meanwhile, searches for her with equal ardor. The film concludes with their meeting and the pledging of their troth.
