Henpecked Mr. Pipkins and husband-pecked Tillie Tinklepaw rebel against the belittling treatment administered to them by their respective mates. One day when his wife goes to her club, Pipkins appropriates her savings. At the same time, Tillie resolves to venture out and have a good time in her husband's absence. By coincidence, the Pipkins, Tinklepaws and Noseys all live in the same apartment house and when Tillie and Mr. Pipkins leave the house together, they are observed by the Noseys. Together they go to Coney Island where, after a lively time and a number of thrilling acrobatic adventures, they flee the park together just as Mr. Tinklepaw and Mrs. Pipkins come in search of their mates. After a chase, the truant pair are rescued from an ocean wave and a loving reconciliation with their respective mates follows.
