A successful clown wants to marry the daughter of a factory owner, but his prospective father-in-law doesn't want a circus performer in the family and insists that he takes a job at the factor. With a heavy heart he agrees, but then discovering a doppelganger her persuades him to take his place. Confusion soon arises between them.
