Nell (Beamer) and Lt. George Surratt (Gordon) are happily married, but Nell's sister Hester (Humphrey) is disappointed because she had hoped to obtain social standing and wealth through the marriage by Nell to an old but wealthy man. Shortly after the marriage, George joins the fighting men in France, but is later reported missing. Sir William Farrell, who cannot go to war because of lameness, becomes interested in Nell, and Hester, forcing Nell to believe her husband is dead, urges her to accept Sir William's proposal. Although Hester tries to intercept it, Nell receives a message that George is alive but suffering from shell shock. The singing of his favorite song, "Bonnie Sweet Bessie", by his wife completely restores his memory and they are happily reunited.
