Working her way on board a liner traveling through the Panama Canal Zone, as a hairdresser, Maggie King meets a brash young soldier, "Skid" Johnson on his last day in the army and reluctantly agrees to a date to celebrate. She discovers Skid's amazing prowess with a trumpet while celebrating at a nightclub. The two become involved in a nightclub brawl, which causes Maggie to miss her ship back to the States. Now stranded, she's forced to move in with Skid and his pal Harry. She and Skid eventually fall in love and marry. Greedy for money, she encourages the reluctant Skid to travel to New York City to play in a major night club, leaving her behind. He is a big success; fame and fortune go to his head, which eventually destroys his marriage, and his career.
