In this tuneful crime drama, a falsely convicted man escapes from prison and hides out with a comely chorine. She discovers that he has talent and the two become a popular dancing team. Their fast ascent to stardom is stopped in its tracks when the dancer's jealous ex-partner turns the fugitive in. The cops don't seem to care that the fellow is innocent and insist that he complete his sentence. If he serves his sentence quietly, they promise to release him in two years. The dancer vows to wait for him and remains true to her word.
