Dr. Enright (Patric Knowles) is the handsome doctor assigned to her case, unbeknownst to Jane. Posing as her chauffeur, he drives her out west to her rich grandmother, from whom Jane hopes to recoup her fortune. Refusing to give Jane a dime, instead her grandmother allows her to work the family's played-out gold mine. Jane's ex-boyfriend (Ralph Bellamy) comes into the picture only to discover Jane is smitten with the doctor. A love triangle ensues and finally the gold mine and Jane's love life starts to yield some promise.
