A comical absurdity about the dream-time revenge of a suffragette's husband.
Taking a satirical approach to both suffragettes and their opponents, this comic short features a hen-pecked husband and his dream-time desires to rid the world of suffragettes.
A weary Mr Brown sits in his front room, nursing two small children. Mrs Brown enters, preparing to attend a suffragette march and wearing a pinafore which reads 'Women's Suffragette. Be Militant.' With Mrs Brown gone and the children in the cot, Mr Brown settles down for an afternoon nap, his dreams consumed by a desire to become Prime Minister and finally legislate for the suppression of the suffragettes.
Mr Brown dreams of a range of misdemeanors and their possible punishments, from hard labour or a spell in the stocks, to six weeks in trousers. The film concludes with the punishment of a hunger striker, sentenced to a witch-like dunking. The woman is tied to the chair, and just as she is dunked in the lake, Mr Brown awakes with a start, his wife dousing him with a bucket of water, throwing him straight back into his 'miserable' reality.
Although Arthur Melbourne-Cooper is listed as the maker in the Audrey Wadowska filmography, the BFI's Screenonline service lists Percy Stow, who ran the Clarendon Film Company.
