Christopher Newman is a wealthy American businessman and civil war veteran who descends upon Europe in search of a wife to make his fortune complete. In Paris, he meets Claire de Cintre, a young widow from an aristocratic Parisian family, with whom he falls in love with. However, his bid for Claire's hand receives an icy welcome from the heads of the family. Can they stomach his manners for the sake of his money?
