Businessman Stephen Chase (Pat O'Brien) is a rising star at the Atlantis Oil Company, which sends him to a isolated part of China, where he awaits the arrival of his fiancée. After receiving a telegram that she has called off the wedding, Stephen instead gets hitched to Hester Adams (Josephine Hutchinson).
