Synopsis:

Lord Clonbrony and his ambitious, worldly wife lead an extravagant social life in London on the proceeds of their estates in Ireland. Their son, Lord Colambre, refusing to marry the heiress arranged for him by his mother, decides instead to investigate, incognito, how the family estates in Ireland are being managed. Appalled at the corruption, mismanagement, and poverty he finds, but encouraged by the affectionate goodwill of the tenants and the honesty of his father's agent Burke, he finds a solution to the problem of his father's debts and his family's wilful indifference, in absentia.
