Rufus Billops, son of wealthy parents, has been reared to manhood believing he is delicate and sickly. He inherits a huge fortune, but it has been placed in some long-term investments, so for some years he will have only a small income. He borrows from three elderly loan-sharks who wish him to live long enough to obtain his principal (so he can pay them). They supply inspiration in the form of a beautiful nurse. Rufus falls in love with her and finding that she admires daring men, he does some reckless stunts that cause his creditors to almost die from anxiety. Dolores, the nurse, creates a scheme to gain the release of his fortune from the lenders, and Rufus finally wins her affection.
