Farm workers Steve and Danny seek jobs in the fields of Florida, where a man named Henry Madden runs a packing plant and uses strong-arm tactics while preventing many farmers from selling their crops.

Steve meets and falls in love with Lola Mears, a "juke girl" employed at Muckeye John's club. They befriend farmer Nick Garcos, whose attempt to sell his tomatoes in Atlanta is foiled by Madden's henchman Cully.
