Jimmy has recently found a job at a nice apartment building, so he can support his half siblings. One evening a wealthy opera singer, Miss Everett asks Jimmy to build her a fire before she returns home to her apartment. After doing some Christmas shopping, Jimmy's siblings convince him to let them come along for his task so they can see Miss Everett's Christmas tree. Just as Jimmy and his siblings are leaving, Miss Everett and her date return home. Instead of being angry with Jimmy, Miss Everett quickly takes charge and helps Jimmy's little sister who is sick.
