Wealthy heiress, Vera ( Vera Sisson ) admires oyster dredger Jack ( Jack Warren Kerrigan ) whom she sees while on a trip to the seaside. She is fascinated by his lifestyle, and convinces him to trade places with her. Jack agrees to the proposition and takes up residence in the girl's home, while she begins the life of an oyster dredger. Her lawyer ( William Quinn ) has gained control of her property and plans to force her to marry him, using the threat of withholding her assets. Vera is indignant at the lawyer's proposal. Jack grows weary of his life of ease and returns to the dredger's life. In a saloon, he overhears the lawyer making insulting remarks about the girl, and as he is about to attack the man, the lawyer steps backward and falls into the sea. Jack and Vera are reunited as the story ends.
"Rather impossible, yet the presence of Jack Kerrigan and Vera Sisson in the principal roles serves to life it from the ordinary. There are many bits of comedy throughout the two reels which make the film doubly enjoyable. The scenes and photography are good." - Motion Picture News
This 1915 silent drama was written and directed by Lon Chaney for the Victor Film Company. Sadly it now remains a lost film.
