Dad Rudd is a grandfather and a prosperous grazier employing his sons Dave, Joe, and Dan at low wages.
Tired of being treated poorly the sons threaten to leave. Dad increases their wages but raises their rent by an equal amount. When eldest grandchild Betty announces her intention to marry Henry Cook, Dad supports suitor Tom Dalley in his efforts to expose Cook as a liar with a conviction in his past.
