In this farce, Mae Marsh, playing the rich young ward of Spottiswoode Aitken, is happily engaged to his nephew, played by Robert Harron. A union of young hearts is about to take place when the wandering eyes of Mae become fixed on blacksmith Elmo Lincoln, a young giant of physical strength and a clod.
