Sadie's mother works as a cook and servant for Michael's wealthy family on their estate. Sadie and Michael grew up as playmates and reminisce about the mischief they created together. Michael is clearly attracted to Sadie, but loses her friendship when he convinces his father to dismiss Sadie's beau Tommy (played by Gene Raymond) from their company.
