A kindly movie projectionist longs to be a detective. When his fiancée is robbed by a local thief, the poor projectionist is framed for the crime. Using his amateur detective skills, the projectionist follows the thief to the train station, only to find himself locked in a train car. Disheartened, he returns to his movie theater, where he falls asleep and dreams that he is the great Sherlock Holmes.
