Swedish-American farmer's daughter Katrin 'Katie' Holstrom leaves the farm to study nursing in the big, wicked city. Thanks to a chiseling acquaintance, her tuition and expense money disappears the first day, and she's forced to get a job...as a domestic for congressman Glenn Morley. Impressed by her political awareness as well as her many charms and capabilities, Glenn is soon infatuated with Katie, and she with him, but their feelings remain unspoken...until Katie speaks up at a party rally and is abruptly thrust into politics herself.

What do you do, Katrin?
Well, at home I do everything. Make six beds every morning. Do washing, ironing for mama, papa, my three brothers, myself. Clean all seven rooms and do dishes of course. And, I help mama with the canning. I preserve meat, candle eggs, dill pickles, smoke ham and bacon. I wait on tables - 40 hands at harvest time. And I make glogg.
Yah, at Christmas time, with a hot poker. You want to know what I do outside?
I don't know about my mother, but I'd be fascinated.
