Synopsis: [Descriptive Catalogue of Kodascope Library Motion Pictures, Third Edition, page 70] Our heroine is obsessed with the idea that she can and must sing. Living on a farm she has lots of open space in which to exercise her voice, but is compelled to admit that not even the cows and chickens will listen to her. During an opportunity to sing in the choir she awakens every living thing, among others a number of peacefully sleeping members of the congregation. From the city comes a smooth-talking man who promises her the world if she will only be his. They go to the big city where, at a trial given to her in a cabaret, she nearly causes a riot. Of course, everything ends happily.
