A troupe of upper class boys tangle with a swarm of mischievous fairies as they try to woo the much-desired Phyllis. However, Phyllis is in love with Strephon – half-fairy, half-mortal, a commoner and the nephew of the Fairy Queen. When the pompous men break up the happy couple, the fairies vow revenge. Frivolity ensues as lofty lordlings and feisty fairies collide in the ever bumpy road to love.
