Plot Synopsis:

Katie Holstrom (Loretta Young), a young, headstrong Swedish girl, decides to leave the farm to pursue a nursing career in Capitol City. There, she takes a job as a maid in the Morely household, immediately winning over Congressman Glenn Morely(Joseph Cotten), his mother and their butler. Morely runs for re-election and wins, but soon after taking office, the Congressman's colleague dies, and the party nominates a political hack named Finley to replace him. Katie is furious and tells Finley off at a rally, drawing so much attention that the rival party drafts her as its dark-horse candidate! By this time, Glenn wants Katie as his wife, not a political colleague. But there is no stopping her, as her campaign builds on her refreshing honesty and openness, the farmer's daughter takes the town by storm.
