Kate is an 18th-century country girl who gets few chances to meet young men. So when one comes along, she isn't about to let him get away, even if she has to stoop to conquer. To fill this void, her father has invited young Marlow out for a visit. Marlow has a strange quirk: he is so shy that he can't bear to look a young lady in the eye—but with the serving girls ... wow! To complicate the plot even further, Tony Lumpkin, a real rascal, tells Marlow that the Hardcastle house is an inn; and Marlow rudely rejects the friendly advances of Mr. Hardcastle, whom he believes to be an overbearing innkeeper. Finally, stooping to conquer, Kate pretends to be a barmaid to win Marlow's attention.
