In the exclusive French resort town of Biarritz, Maurice, a naïve young man, tells his friend Albert about his love for the South American beauty Carmelita Desano. Maurice reveals that, because Carmelita is an heiress, he fears she will think he only is out for her money if he proposes marriage. Hearing this, Albert, a ne'er-do-well gambler, decides to pursue Carmelita himself. When he meets Carmelita, Albert uses flattery and continental manners to ingratiate himself to her, then causes her to question Maurice's character by saying that he had planned to announce their engagement that evening. Although at first angry over Maurice's presumption, Carmelita later realizes that she loves him and agrees to marry him. Soon after, Albert, with the cooperation of his actress friend Mafalda, convinces Carmelita that Maurice is a cad, who is involved with Mafalda.
