- Emily has been brought up by her Aunt Helen in a strict belief in the wickedness of time-wasting amusements and the necessity for constant "good works" and ceaseless committees for the improvement of everybody.
- Above all, her long-dead father has been held before her as a shining example of rigorous Puritanism.
- Dutifully, Emily follows Aunt Helen's teachings, even if she reads Marie Corelli novels in secret.
- The unexpected arrival of Connie Clayton - flamboyant ex-Gaiety girl and one-time close friend of Emily's father, however, reveals a different picture of him and precipitates a crisis.
