Mickey is an orphan who has been raised since girlhood in poverty near Feather River, California, by an unsuccessful miner, Joe Meadows, and his housekeeper, Minnie. She was the free-spirited, uncultured daughter of the miner's deceased partner. Joe took charge of Mickey at her dying mother's request. Mickey is sent to live in Great Neck, Long Island with her aunt, Mrs. Drake, and her family. Mrs. Drake is under the impression that Mickey is wealthy and well-refined. When Mickey arrives at her aunt's luxurious home, she is disappointed that Mickey is not well-to-do and puts her to work as a servant. Mickey's presence there sparks an awkward love triangle involving her, her cousin Elsie, and young mining executive Herbert Thornhill, whom Mickey first met in California. Just after Mickey is sent packing, a telegram arrives for her announcing that a vein has been struck on Joe's Tomboy mine and she is suddenly worth millions. Mrs. Drake's opinion of Mickey changes quickly and she is welcomed back — in the hope she and Mrs. Drake's feckless son, Reggie, will become a couple.
