Plot

Stan Laurel (an Englishman by birth) becomes an Asian in this Joe Rock comedy. As the new baby in the family, Laurel is shown in a high chair and playing with a ball. His big brother is jealous of all the attention his new baby brother is getting, so he drops him in a pile of dirty clothes, which is subsequently taken to a Chinese laundry shop. He is found among the dirty clothes by an employee, who takes him in and raises him as his own. When he grows up he goes to work in the laundry shop himself. Sum Sap, as he is known, angers a Tong gangster and is in fear of his life. After eluding the danger he manages to get the best of his foes and marry his Chinese girlfriend (Julie Leonard). Just then, his real parents finally find him and he soon discovers that he is rich.
