Young orphans Ethel, Blanche, Harry, and Nannette Eldon have suffered much since the loss of their parents -- their British father after a prolonged illness and their mother suddenly over the shock of her husband's death. Now these youngsters are sent across the Atlantic to live with their uncles in Philadelphia. Ethel, who is eager to do her share to support her brother and sisters, takes a job running a shop, and she and Blanche become engaged to cousins Stuart Ormsby and Percy Landreth. The boys bring their brides home to Pleasant Plans, and Mildred gains a daughter.
