Mae Marsh is a frivolous mountain girl, whose admirer Robert Harron can't impress her with his attention. Eventually she meets and falls for Henry Walthall, an older valley man, and later elopes with him. However, when she sees him with another woman Mae Marsh abandons him.  Pride being too strong to go back home, she finds work as a waitress and stays in town. One day Robert Harron comes visiting and is surprised to meet Mae Marsh again.  Will she listen to him and return home?
