Tommy Flynn loves Gracie Nolan, a blonde hostess at the Paradise Dance Hall. One evening she is annoyed by a drunken truckdriver, and Ted Smith, a handsome young aviator, intervenes. Tommy, grateful for Ted's help, allows him to dance the prize contest with Gracie. Gracie falls madly in love with the glamorous aviator, to Tommy's despair. When Ted's plane crashes on a coast-to-coast flight, Gracie goes into a state of shock, then calls for Ted. Tommy learns that Ted is not seriously interested in Gracie and that actually he refuses to see her; Tommy then is badly beaten in a fight. Gracie realizes the extent of Tommy's sacrifice, and after their reunion they are married.
