Tobias Mill, an English merchant, is arranging the marriage of his daughter Fanny to a visiting Canadian businessman named Slook. Mill sees the matter in purely commercial terms, in effect requiring a dowry. Fanny's real love is the impoverished Edward Milfort. Mill's servants, Norton and Clarinda, prepare the house for Slook's arrival. When he does appear, Fanny makes her displeasure at the prospect of marrying him very clear - to the point that she and Edward physically threaten him. Slook retires to his room. When he returns, Norton further dissuades him with a commercial metaphor, telling him that the goods he wants to purchase are already mortgaged. Enraged, Slook tells Mill that he is no longer interested in proceeding with the 'contract'. Mill challenges him to a duel. Slook sees Fanny and Edward together; they explain Mill's contractual approach to marriage and Edward's limited resources. Slook promises to make Edward his heir, thereby uplifting Edward's status and enabling him and Fanny to be together. Mill returns for the duel but his pistol is substituted by Slook for a peace pipe without Mill's knowledge. The duel is prevented by the rest of the group who, together with Slook, manage to convince Mill to allow Fanny and Edward to marry.

The courtier Ormondo desires the Duchess Isabella, wife of Duke Bertrando, but she spurns him. Ormondo seeks revenge by tarnishing her reputation, and encouraging Batone, another courtier, to abduct her and cast her adrift in a boat. Isabella is rescued by Tarabotto, the leader of a coastal mining community, who adopts her as his niece under the name Nisa. Ten years later Bertrando and his courtiers arrive in the area on military manoeuvres. Seeing him, Nisa writes him a letter proclaiming her innocence. Tarabotto learns of her identity and promises to help reunite her to her husband. He takes the Duke on a tour of the mines, leaving Batone alone with Nisa, whom he recognises. The Duke returns to town and he too recognises Nisa. Disturbed by this, Ormondo orders Batone to abduct Nisa again. Tarabotto overhears them and invites Nisa to tell everyone about her history. He then warns the Duke of the renewed danger to his wife and when the abductors come for her they are exposed. Nisa proves who she is by producing a portrait of the Duke that she has kept for all this time.
