The play opens with Leonora Perrycoste, a very attractive young English lady, at the telephone trying to learn the identity of a handsome American she has just met at a tea party. In the midst of her naive inquiries, Dwight Houston, the young American in question, appears in her flat, having been impelled to visit her by an urge similar to her own. They are instantly off in a madcap adventure, loving each other but wondering. After two days they feel that they understand each other perfectly. Suddenly he is recalled to America, He proposes. She hesitates, and reluctantly they part. As soon as he has gone Leonore realizes that her discretion is the poorest part of her valor. Just as she has begun to feel that for her the world has ended, Dwight, at a last moment's reprieve, returns for three more days' grace. Leonora, not going to miss another chance, readily accepts him, and as the curtain falls Dwight salutes his mother-in-law over the long distance telephone.
