~Plot Synopsis~
While camping in the woods, theology student Sheldon Avery meets Natalie Raydon, who has grown
up ignorant of the world outside the forest. At first, they spend their time discussing religion, but then
their relationship gets more physical than philosophical, after which Sheldon asks Natalie to marry
him. She turns him down, however, because she does not love him, and then, a short time later, she
falls in love with Sheldon's millionaire friend, Robert Fielding. They ask Sheldon to officiate at their
wedding, and during the ceremony, surrounded by her future husband and her former lover, Natalie
breaks down and confesses to her brief affair with Sheldon. After a moment of indecision, Robert
insists that the ceremony continue.
