Hotshot attorney Jimmy Hughes (Preston S. Foster) prides himself on never backing down from a dare. Thus, when he is goaded into running for mayor on the Reform ticket, Jimmy mounts an aggressive campaign. Only one problem: the incumbent mayor (Frank M. Thomas) is the father of Jimmy's sweetheart Trudy (Joan Fontaine). Before unentangling this problem, our hero manages to rescue Hizzoner from a contingent of graft-grabbing cronies. In one of her first major roles, Joan Fontaine is quite appealing, but her lack of experience stands out in marked contrast to the expertise of Preston Foster and the rest of the cast.
