A teen-age girl becomes infatuated with an artist, a man many years older than she. Her older sister,a Judge, convinces the artist that the only way to cure the young girl's infatuation is for him to take her out every night for a week. The sister's powers of persuasion are enhanced by the fact the girl had sneaked, uninvited, into his apartment to model for him, and she takes a dim view of 40-year-old men having teen-age girls in his apartment, so it's either date the quail or go to jail.
