Tells of a number of people who have trekked to Los Angeles in the hope that they can do in California what they could not achieve in their home states. They now live in the house of Rosita Morenas, who calls her single rooms apartments, and who dreams of someday living in the manner of her "noble" ancestors. Her daughter, Carmen, is married to a young bank clerk, and Mrs. Morenas vainly seeks for affection in that quarter. When gold is discovered in her yard, Mrs. Morenas is sure that her son-in-law will accept her. Mrs. Morenas' boarders are a Philadelphia businessman who went to Los Angeles to write songs, a young veteran who is now selling mineral water while his wife works nights, and a promoter, who, like Mrs. Morenas, is native-born and is sold on the California dream to the point of embezzling for it. Gold is actually found, but it is only some ore specimens that Tim, an old prospector and friend of Mrs. Morenas, has brought from his latest mine. Though there is no gold, the dreamers make their dreams come true through a realization of themselves, rather than what they hoped to be.
A rollicking Satire/Political Satire which levels its shafts against the mania for get-rich-quick schemes.
