Charles Chaplin's first tentative effort at both story and direction is a simple park comedy. Upon seeing a couple kissing on a park bench, Charlie parodies their ardor by embracing a tree. On another park bench, a woman demands a present as proof of her fiance's love. The man steals a watch as his gift. Charlie manages to procure the watch from the pickpocket and present it to the woman himself. Their flirtation and the ownership of the watch creates pandemonium in the park with everyone but Charlie and the girl ending up in Westlake Park lake.
