Patricia O'Brian is engaged to Danny Mallory, a detective whose ambition is to own a farm and leave the Broadway life for the countryside. Patricia, on the other hand, is a chorus girl and, knowing the theater environment, tries to keep Nora, her younger sister, away from her. The girl, with a head full of crickets for the celebrity world, attracts the attention of Dicky Crawford, a patron of the womanizing arts who gets her a part in a show. Nora falls in love and Patricia tries to distract Crawford's interest from her sister by flirting with him. During the dress rehearsal, Patricia is chosen to replace the first sick actress. But, while in the dressing room, he sees a note that Nora is preparing to go to Crawford's apartment. Half dressed, he rushes to stop her, leaving the theater as he is, throwing on only a coat over the petticoat. At Crawford's house, the man tells her he is only interested in her. The two, however, are surprised by Danny who, working as an investigator for Crawford's wife, is looking for evidence to nail the man so that his wife can get a divorce. Having found his girlfriend wearing only underwear under her coat, Danny doesn't want to hear Patricia's protests of innocence. Only later, when Pat is about to be evicted, do the two manage to talk and clarify. Reconciled, they marry, moving to the countryside with Nora and her new boyfriend, a young stage assistant in love with her.
