A young violinist suffers a breakdown. His doctor sends him to the country, where he can eat simple food. There, he enjoys the rustic setting and good-natured people. When he returns to the city, bringing pretty Lillian Walker with him, she does not deal with the fast crowd and their habits well.... at first.
This is a pretty good example of the conventional film-making of the era and highlights a point that modern viewers often miss: that the way people dress in these movies is often a class and occupation marker. The costumes here might have been pulled out of a Keystone farce of the era, with Bohemians wearing berets and rustics wearing ill-fitting clothes and straw hats.
If you wish to see for yourself, a good copy of this movie has been posted to the Eye Institute site on YouTube.
