Karen Wright and Martha Dobie have been best friends since they were in college and now are owners of the boarding school of Wright and Dobie School for Girls. They have worked hard to make their school more successful. Problems arise when Karen becomes angry with Doctor Joe Cardin, who happens to be the nephew of the distinguished Mrs. Amelia Tilford. They also run into her lying and vindictive granddaughter, Mary, who is reprimanded by Karen for not being honest. Martha has to deal with her snobby aunt Lily Mortar on why her niece was punished. Lily becomes infuriated with Martha and accuses Martha of having an irregular relationship with Karen. Mary's roommate, Rosalie Wells, and another girl overhear the conversation between Lily and Mary. She runs to Mary with the news and Mary tells her grandmother that Karen and Martha are lesbians, which leads to her parents finding out. They end up taking Mary out of the school.
