May Allison was making something of a comeback in this picture -- she'd been away from the screen for some time. Unfortunately there was nothing particularly original about this romance, even though her co-star was her then-husband, Robert Ellis, and he helped direct it. Allison plays Eva Lee, your average, everyday New York chorus girl. Since she is out of work, she takes a position as a cabaret dancer in South America, and as a result gets involved with some unscrupulous financiers. Cameron Camden (Robert Schable) wants her to entice wealthy Fernando Pennington (Ellis) so that he will enter into a shady business deal with them. After she's done her job, she casts him off even though she has fallen in love with him. Her love and her guilt get the better of her, and she winds up helping Pennington to stop Cameron from carrying out his dirty deeds.
