A romantic triangle heats up the Alaskan tundra in this romantic comedy. Bascom Dinsmore (Robert Montgomery) is a radio operator who is stationed at a remote outpost in the frozen plains of Alaska. Dinsmore gets very little in the way of companionship, particularly of the female variety, so he's more than a bit enthusiastic when lovely Irene Champion (Myrna Loy) and her wealthy British groom-to-be Sir James Felton (Reginald Owen) have to make an emergency landing near his cabin. Dinsmore takes an immediate liking to Champion, and she appears to feel the same, much to the consternation of Felton. As Dinsmore and Felton wage a merry battle over Champion's hand, Clara Wilson (Winifred Shotter), Felton's former fiancée, arrives on the scene, eager to win back the affections of her now-wealthy ex-boyfriend.
