As described in a film magazine, Diana Webster (Dana), a willful young woman with plenty of money, and Jimmy Harrison (McCullough), her Aunt Sue's (Astor) fiancé, are forced to stay all night in a country hotel because of a storm. Getting a single room, they pretend they are married to satisfy the concerns of the hotel manager. Jimmy sleeps on a cot in the hall, but hotel guest Bruce Terring (Forrest) does not know this. Later, Bruce meets Diana at her home where he is a guest, and his scandalous interpretation of her escapade infuriates the young woman. She decides to teach him a lesson and show him that "seeing is not always believing" by placing him in a similar unusual position. She hires an actor and his wife to frame a badger game on Bruce. However, the couple double-cross her and Diana is forced into a blackmailing scheme which forces Bruce to rescue her, resulting in a snappy but happy ending for Bruce and Diana.
