Farmer boy Johnny Madden travels to the city and falls in love with Capella, a dancer at a musical revue. His mother is heartbroken at her beloved son's flying the nest and that the woman he has flown to is a common actress. She had always intended that he would marry their neighbor, Daisy Brown, a vain and self-centered girl. Mrs. Madden begins secretly putting the screws to Capella to make her abandon Johnny so that he will come back to the farm and Daisy.
