||Edith Hilliard is an orphan boarding in the home of the Bakers, members of the orphanage board. She is secretly in love with their nephew Bud. She is self-conscious about her homeless background, and, when Bud proposes, she is so confused, she runs away by hitching rides out of town. When one motorist expects physical intimacy for providing her with a lift, she flees into the stormy evening. Realizing her decision to run away from Bud was a mistake, she returns to the Baker home. The Bakers have prepared a surprise birthday party for her, and, when Bud once again proposes, she accepts.
