The movie is about a young man named Richard Thayer who is in love with a young woman named Beth Lane. He wants to ask her to marry him, but he can't because she is always surrounded by other men who like her and by her father. Richard's friends, William and Maude Harcourt, decide to have a dinner party and invite Richard and Beth so that they can be together. However, the night they plan it, William's business partner shows up for a surprise visit. This causes a lot of problems for Richard, Beth, and the Harcourts.
