Agent Pete Garland (Phil Regan) is fired by society singer Monica Barrett (Louise Henry) after he got her a new radio contract, because she thinks her lawyer friend Teddy Leeds (Monroe Ownsley) fits in better with her social status. To get even, Pete wants to make an unknown singer into a star. He finds Ruth Allison (Francrs Langhord), drives her hard through rehearsals and makes her a star. But she is worried about her past, something she hasn't told Pete: She's an ex-convict and jumped bail in order to keep her partners in crime out of it. Further she's in love with Pete, but feels that he's still carrying a torch for Monica. When Monica's popularity is decreasing, Pete is able to get Ruth a stint on the program, the result is Monica is fired and Ruth get her job, but Monica takes revenge by revealing Ruth's past. Ruth considers it is best for her to disappear before being arrested, but she has become a star in public opinion. Will she get Pete or will she go to prison again ?
