As described in a film magazine, Genevieve Rutherford Hale (Martin), pampered daughter of wealthy parents, decides to become a farmerette to help win the war. She arrives at the Hubbard farm in her limousine and goes to work with a group of other young women. Bob Hubbard (Welch), the youngest son of farmer Hubbard (Cummings), falls in love with Genevieve, and when he enters an army training camp life becomes so distasteful that he goes AWOL and returns home. Genevieve persuades him to return to camp, but they are discovered together and the elder Hubbard sends the young woman away. Bob obtains a leave of absence and goes home to explain things to explain things to his father, and Genevieve's name is cleared in the eyes of the farmer and farmerettes. Bob becomes a good soldier and determines to marry Genevieve when the war is over.
