Dulcie, played by Mary Miles Minter, grows up with two aunts in the South who, for whatever reason, keep Dulcie from getting out much and mingling with the neighbors. Regardless, Dulcie still manages to hop the fence occassionally to mingle with some friends. Her aunt's manage to catch her a few times, once while she was holding a young pig in her arms, a situation which didn't please her once aristocratic aunts.

The aunts hatch a scheme to recover the family fortune by taking Dulcie to California and, hopefully, marrying her into a wealthy family. Reluctantly, she leaves her true sweetheart, Harry, behind and off to California they go. There, they arrange a marriage to a European count who manages to get arrested at the altar on a bank robbery charge. Fortunately, Harry has followed Dulcie out west and immediately offers to marry her. She obliges.
