Finally meeting her secret crush, innocent Mary Lane (Sullavan) falls in love with James Emerson (Boles) only to discover how little she means to him.  With the support of her suffragette and controversial Aunt Julia (Burke), Mary goes on to become successful in her own right, but is unable to forget her first love.
