In this lively comedy (a predecessor of the screwball comedies of the '30s and '40s) a young woman lies to the policeman who stopped her for speeding by saying that she had to rush to the side of her ailing baby. Accompanying the woman is the young man who was following her. Before the two speed demons go to court, they must come up with a baby to prove their innocence. A frantic, fruitless search ensues until at last they find a helpful midget who begins impersonating their baby. Just when it looks as if their little scam will succeed, "baby's" jealous wife shows up and blows their cover, causing the two to escape in an airplane. More mayhem follows, but afterward love blossoms and wedding bells ultimately ring.
