Synopsis

Fernanda, the orphaned daughter of a victim of the San Francisco earthquake, is cared for by relatives in Spain until she reaches the age of 18, when her most ardent admirer, Don Jaime, asks her to marry him. Fernanda perversely refuses him and goes to San Francisco, where she meets Pat O'Malley, a plumbing contractor. They are attracted to each other; Pat takes Fernanda to visit his home; but she is repulsed by the rough manners of Mrs. O'Malley and by the inelegance of the O'Malley house. Fernanda breaks off her flirtation with Pat, and he kidnaps her, taking her to his mountain cabin. They are followed by Don Jaime, who amiably takes Fernanda off with him. Pat returns home and is berated by his mother for falling in love with a girl of a different class. Fernanda then arrives and informs Pat that she can no longer live without his love.
