Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A clever little study of character. Clayton is an autocratic and irascible old Yorkshireman, spoiled by his son and daughter. His granddaughter comes from Canada with an equally strong will of her own and they have a tremendous quarrel, but after a while he softens and she, being made to understand how he had become what he was, softens also.
