Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, in spite of her grown-up stepchildren’s efforts to get their greedy hands on it. Knowing they cannot get hold of her fortune, they commit her to a sanitorium hoping to “bring her to her senses.” In the sanatorium Mrs. Savage meets a variety of social misfits, men and women who just cannot adjust themselves to life, people who need the help only Mrs. Savage can provide! In time, she realizes that she finds happiness with them and plans to spend the rest of her life as one of them. But when the doctor tells her there is no real reason for to remain, she hesitates to go out into a hard world where people seem ready to do anything for money. The self-seeking stepchildren are driven to distraction by their vain efforts to browbeat Mrs. Savage, and she leads them on a merry chase with the help of her new friends. The mood of the play is high comedy and leaves the audience with the feeling that kindness and affection will always triumph over greed and dishonesty.
