As described in a film magazine,[4] Sylvia Weston (Clark) is a capricious young woman who says "I do NOT" when she leaves a rich groom at the altar. She runs away in her bridal gown to a bungalow she owns at Loon Lake, only to find it occupied by three men with grudges against women. They expel her and her old nurse to a nearby cabin and stake out a line over which the women are not to cross. One by one the three men come to love Sylvia. The two older men, thinking that she is unhappily married, propose to adopt her and provide her with some clothes other than her bridal gown and swimming suit, which is all she has at the cabin. The younger one, however, is wiser and wins her in the end.
