Rufus Billops, son of wealthy parents, has been reared to manhood in the belief that he is delicate and ill. He inherits a huge fortune which is tied up so that for some years he will have only a small income. Needing coin, he borrows from three elderly loan-sharks who wish him to live long enough to obtain his principal. They supply inspiration in the form of a beautiful nurse. Rufus falls in love with her and finding that she admires daring men, he does some reckless stunts that cause his creditors to almost die from anxiety. Dolores, the nurse, schemes out a plan to gain the release of his fortune from the lenders, and Rufus finally wins her affection.
