We see a country boy leave the plow and his old father and mother, even the little country lass who loves him and we follow his career as he struggles to get work and slowly loses heart in the big town. At last he gets a job that will just pay his meager expenses. The little country girl back home has a brilliant idea: she looks up another city ad and hies her to town also. She even lets herself apparently fall into the snares of a cheap theatrical manager. This last incident is too much for the boy and he suddenly wakes up and realizes that the good home, the sweetness of the country, and life with the girl he loves, would be far more attractive than his present sordid struggle. Of course, the little girl pretends to be hard to persuade, but of course in the end she relents and we see them finally go "back to the land" and to happiness as the story comes to a close.
