When Olive is hired as Ziegfeld show girl, she soon becomes a wildly popular singer and dancer. Olive enjoys her exciting city life along with her independence. When she meets Archie Carmichael, a wealthy handsome businessman, he is supportive of her career, until the couple starts talking about marriage. Archie wants children and is quite able to support a stay-at-home wife. Olive has a past she is unwilling to share with Archie and calls off their wedding.

When Olive’s aunt May passes away long-held secrets are revealed. Fortunately, Olive reaches out to Archie and her talents, and his forgiveness allow them to move ahead with a new plan.
