Chaplin and Sterling play two young men, Masher and Rival Masher, who fight over the chance to help a young woman (Clifton) cross a muddy street. Sterling first sees the woman trying to cross and offers her an umbrella he stole from a policeman (Conklin). He asks her to wait for him as he goes to get something to help her. Chaplin comes along and offers the woman to help her cross the street as well and wait for his return. While Sterling and Chaplin go to get logs, another policeman (Nolan) lifts the woman across the street. When Sterling returns with the log, he is indignant that the woman did not wait for him to come back to help her cross the muddy street and demands the umbrella back. When the woman refuses, they engage in a fight which eventually involves Chaplin.
A British movie magazine, The Cinema, provided this review of Between Showers: "[It's] a screamingly funny comedy, featuring Charles Chaplin and a charming girl. All the trouble is caused by an umbrella, and two men's rivalry for the favour of the lady. Their efforts to outdo each other in gallantry create many humorous situations."
