The film tells the story of Fisher Willow (Howard). After returning from overseas, she falls in love with Jimmy (Chris Evans), the son of an alcoholic father and an insane mother. She does everything in her power to pass him off as a wealthy suitor so that she can appease her family, especially her aunt (Ann-Margret), who controls their fortune and who would deem Jimmy completely unsuitable based on his family's background. Fisher, however, realizes she has lost a diamond, which might put her relationship in jeopardy.
