The story takes place in 1910. Kate and Merton are in love. Problem: Kate can and will not marry Merton due to the fact that he has no money. If she does marry Merton she will be disowned by her wealthy Aunt. What to do? Viola! Along comes wealthy dying Millie! Kay works to set up Merton with Millie in hopes that something comes of the the two, insuring that Merton will inherit Millie's fortune. We'll leave it at that!
