Backwoods country girl Trudy Harker is left in Joe's care after the death of the grandfather who raised her. Joe is determined to fulfill his promise to the old man: turning Trudy into a "lady" so she can live in the California mansion of her other grandfather.
Joe is entrusted to see that Grandpa Coomb's deathbed wish is carried out. That his granddaughter is returned to the people she never knew -- the high society Harkers. Joe must teach her to be like them before they arrive as all she's known is the life of a sheepherder living in the mountains.
