FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

Mike and Danny, two bush pilots, are grounded when a local sheriff attaches their plane as security for unpaid bills resulting from Mike's weakness for women and Danny's for gambling. They hitch a ride to Seattle with Walter Ling, a Chinese farmer, and his young niece Sue-Lin. Upon arrival the uncle finds it impossible to take Sue-Lin to the World's Fair, and Mike volunteers to accompany her while Danny goes to search for a friend, Vince Bradley. Sue-Lin gets a stomach ache after sampling every kind of food and going on every ride. In the dispensary Mike makes a successful play for nurse Diane Warren, but during their dinner date Sue-Lin arrives and tearfully explains that she has lost her uncle. Mike takes her under his wing, but she is taken away by the Child Welfare Board, supposedly on Diane's recommendation. In reality, Danny is the informer--he wants Mike to help him pilot a plane for Vince. Mike agrees, but he learns just before takeoff that Sue-Lin has run away. He finds her at the fair and takes her to the airplane. Meanwhile, Diane, also looking for Sue-Lin, has arrived at the runway. Mike becomes suspicious of Vince and discovers that the cargo they were to transport consists of smuggled furs. A scuffle ensues, police apprehend Vince, Mike and Diane are reconciled, Sue-Lin is reunited with her uncle, and all ends happily.
