Eugenia, an American expatriate brought up in Europe, arrives in New England with her charming brother Felix, hoping to find a wealthy second husband. Their exotic, sophisticated airs cause quite a stir with their affluent, God-fearing American cousins, the Wentworths - and provoke the disapproval of their uncle.
Eugenia wins the attentions of Robert Acton, the most appropriate suitor in the area, while also seducing her younger cousin, Clifford. On the other hand, Felix's luxurious romantic ways find acceptance with the American women - particularly Gertrude Wentworth. But misunderstandings of a different kind complicate his plans. In a bungle of culture clash and love triangles, the Europeans hang their fortunes upon their ability to adapt. But where their scheming leads them is the last place they expect.
