During the 1880s Kit Dobson, an English music hall singer performing in Australia, has scraped together enough money to buy a passage home to Britain with plans to settle down. However, unknown to her, her unreliable boyfriend has used most of the money to buy a gold mine in South Africa. They arrive in Gold Rush Johannesburg only to find that they have been swindled. The only option left for them is for Kit to seek a job singing in a saloon run by an American known as Yankee Gordon.
