As described in a film magazine,[6] poor young man Frederick Tile (Barrymore) is in love with the daughter of a rich man, and in order to obtain money agrees to marry a veiled woman from whom he will be divorced in one year and allow some schemers to use his name to obtain a vast property.

After the ceremony, the just married groom by a set of logical circumstances comes to spend the night in the mansion of some friends who have just left town. The young woman he loves, Ethel Sinclair (Binney) that same night has left home, leaving a note that says she plans to elope with the man she loves, and by another set of logical circumstances sleeps in an adjacent room at the mansion. The next morning they meet at breakfast while still in their bedclothes, resulting in a comical situation.
