A rich countryman, Mr. Hardcastle wants his daughter, Kate, to marry an equally rich man. They both set their sights on Charles Marlow, the son of a wealthy Londoner. When they learn more about Charles, they discover that he finds upper class women intimidating, which is why he prefers the company of the lower class. Kate creates a plan to play the role of a maid in hopes of putting Charles at ease and, eventually, marrying him. Of course, no scheme goes smoothly as planned.
