Emma Foster (Helen Broderick) spends all her time entering contests and sweepstakes, much to the annoyance of her husband, Otis (Victor Moore).

When Emma finally wins a contest and is chosen to be an entrant in the Mrs. America competition, Otis must tag along and secretly do all the domestic tasks required of the contestants. But Otis may finally have been pushed too far.
