It's "Wakes Week" in Hindle; the mill is closed and the workers are idle. Fanny Hawthorn is relaxing at the seashore with a girlfriend when she runs into Alan Jeffcote, the mill owner's son. Alan takes Fanny to a hotel in Wales for a few days of fun, but the fun stops when their parents find out. Should Alan, already engaged to another woman, do the right thing and make an honest woman of Fanny? Or should he do the right thing and stand by his fiancée?
