Plot summary

Bill Davis is a federal postal inspector. When he returns home to Milltown from a business trip in Washington, D.C., he meets singer Connie Larrimore on the plane. When they land, Bill is met by his brother Charlie, who is already acquainted with Connie.

At a nightclub owned by Gregory Benez where she sings, Charlie and Connie hear about a shipment of $3 million in retired currency being scheduled. Benez, who is heavily in debt, schemes with a man named Ritter who has recently lost money as a victim of possible mail fraud.

A flood in a nearby town affects the shipment's route. Charlie goes to the scene with the National Guard and is aided by Connie, who volunteers as a relief worker. Benez and his accomplices rob the shipment. Charlie is in love with Connie and quarrels with his brother when Bill asks if she told Benez about the cash shipment. A speedboat is used to head off the thieves, Benez is sent to prison and Charlie invites his brother to his wedding to Connie.
