Duke Davis (Ralph Cooper) is the tireless promoter of his songstress sweetheart, Ethel Andrews (Lena Horne).

Unwilling, however, to abandon her beau for a rival promoter, Ethel refuses to take the booking. Undeterred, Duke hatches a selfless scheme that, while it may lead Ethel to stardom in the Big Apple, also risks driving her away from him forever.
