When his impoverished past is uncovered, Matt Howard (Cary Grant) is promptly fired by the Peytons, a wealthy family in Williamsburg during the Revolutionary War era. Undeterred, Matt returns to court the family's daughter, Jane (Martha Scott), and the two marry and raise a family in the Virginia backwoods, infuriating the Peytons.
