Wealthy ladies’ man J. Harold Manners (Harold Lloyd) enjoys a privileged, sheltered life. So, when he finds out his name is being used to bring people into a mission in the poorer part of town, Harold sets out to get his moniker removed from the project. Instead, he meets the priest’s daughter, Hope (Jobyna Ralston), and is smitten. That Hope is from the wrong side of the tracks doesn’t dissuade Harold from pursuing her. The question is whether this uptown boy can win over a downtown girl.
