Taxi dancing provides the framework for this romantic drama that chronicles the attempted love affair between a shipping clerk and a taxi dancer. Try as he might, he cannot distract the lovely dancer from her fixation upon a dashing aviator. The pilot seems to return her affection. The shipping clerk finally gets his chance after the aviator crashes while attempting a cross-country flight. The dancer is devastated and the clerk moves in to care for her. He keeps secret his knowledge that the pilot is alive and living with another lady. When the truth is finally revealed, the dancer flies into a rage. She immediately tries to see the pilot, who cruelly rejects her. Chastened, the dancer goes back to the clerk. Together they waltz off to lead a happy life.
