Aubrey Henry Maitland Allington is an unsuccessful inventor with a list of debts longer than his name. When financial relief arrives in the form of a large inheritance, Aubrey's exuberance is quickly quashed when he realises that his creditors will certainly snatch up all of his newly acquired "tons of money" before he lays a hand on it.
