This flimsy comedy-drama was nothing more than a routine program picture. Roy Jones (John Junior) and Bill Barton (Harry Dunkinson) are expelled from college. Jones receives word that an uncle has died and left him his estate, but when the young men show up to collect, they find the "estate" consists of a debt-ridden general store. They pawn it off on a frivolous millionaire for three hundred dollars and open up a brokerage. They don't get much done, since Jones spends his time flirting with the stenographer. Finally, one of their former schoolmates, a young Frenchman, approaches them with a commission to buy two million dollars' worth of ammunition for his country. After getting an advance, the aspiring brokers decide to head for a fashionable resort where Barton pretends to be a millionaire. He meets an heiress, Grace Melville (Elizabeth Burbridge), and they run off together. It doesn't take long for them to discover they are both penniless, but they decide to go ahead and get married anyway. Unfortunately, they can't even pay the justice of the peace and he threatens to toss them in jail. Jones is also about to be put behind bars for fraud, but everything gets squared up in the end. The brokers form a company with the millionaire to manufacture ammunition for France, and Jones marries the stenographer.
