Peggy (Mary Pickford) is a strong-willed young woman who lives during the 18th century. She is not attracted to any of her suitors, but an English Lord becomes intrigued with her and convinces Peggy to marry him. However, Peggy's earthy manner doesn't blend well with the cultured nobility, and she is embarrassed at a party. She flees the party with the Lord's cousin, but the Lord is worried that the cousin will make advances to her, so he follows them. When the cousin does make a pass at Peggy, she loses her temper and throws things at him, and the Lord is reassured that she loves him after all. While Peggy does submit to a man long enough to get married, she does as she pleases for most of the film. Mary Pickford gives another strong performance as an independent woman.
