This warm-hearted tale centers on Mrs. Ethel Savage, a slightly eccentric widow. As the recipient of her deceased husband’s estate, she wants to make the best use of it, despite her stepchildren’s selfish attempts to get their hands on it. Mrs. Savage, however, has put her wealth into negotiable bonds in the hopes of establishing a fund to help others realize their hopes and dreams, much to the siblings’ chagrin. They then commit her to a “sanitarium” in the hopes of shocking her to her senses. There she meets a variety of social misfits. These wonderful individuals immediately endear themselves to Mrs. Savage. With the help of her new-found friends, Mrs. Savage leads her stepchildren on a merry chase which eventually brings them to the pits of humiliation and despair.
