Lorry (Constance Bennett) and Minnie (Pert Kelton) portray a pair of rollickingly wanton prostitutes who occasionally get hapless male admirers drunk before robbing them. After being released from a Louisiana jail they head downriver on a steamboat. Lorry steals $60, and when she is cornered, she jumps ship. She is rescued by cotton barge skipper Dan (Joel McCrea) but she robs him, too. In New Orleans, she tricks publishing magnate Stephen into getting drunk and blackmails him into lavishly providing for her. She returns to the cotton barge and repays Dan his "loan" and they fall in love. Stephen threatens to expose her past, causing her to leave him but not to return to Dan, whom she had agreed to marry. When Stephen cannot persuade her to return to him, he realizes that she really does love Dan, and he effectuates their reunion with the help of the now married, Minnie.
