Cruelly separated from his mother (Dorothy Peterson), little Donald McCoy (Scotty Beckett) is being robbed of his childhood by greedy relatives. Taking pity on the boy, pilot Mitchell (Chester Morris) "kidnaps" the kid and sets out to return him to his mom. Detective Maxine (Sally Eilers), assigned to bring Donald back to his legal guardians, instead joins Mitchell in his efforts to do what's best for the boy. Along the way, the three fugitives disguise themselves in blackface, a scene that has often been cut from TV showings. Pursuit is based on Lawrence G. Blochman's mini-novel Gallant Highway.
