Sir Richard has been killed in a hunting 'accident' and the estate will pass to his son, Paul. But his stepmother and stepsister have designs on the estate and the money and together they come up with an idea to gain it all - they are going to turn the rather effeminate young Paul into a girl, into Miss Primrose! He is boarded in the West Wing of the ancestral home, taught needlework and other lady-like pastimes. But a reporter is on to the story of the death of Sir Richard and the supposed 'death' of Paul and bribes a maid to get him the inside story. She is found out and forced to live in the West Wing with Miss Primrose, but dressed as a little boy! The reporter meets with a very convenient 'accident' as well! But justice is eventually done, the ladies are found out and retribution taken by all concerned.
