Plot summary

The plot remained essentially the same as in the play and previous film versions. Kathleen (Jeanette MacDonald) is a young Irish woman in love with an American, Kenneth Wayne (Gene Raymond). The romance, however, is opposed by her adopted father John Carteret (Brian Aherne), who recalls the painful memory of his tragically thwarted love for Kathleen's aunt, Moonyean Clare (the roles of Kathleen and Moonyean are both played by MacDonald).
