A maid, in cahoots with Madame Zenobia, a fake psychic, fools Jo Ainsly into believing Zenobia to be a gifted fortune teller.

Jo helps a young beauty queen, Toni Gerard, find a job with Pop Tibbots in an arcade. Toni ends up conspiring with Madame Zenobia to fool Jo's handsome attorney, Brad Cavanaugh, into buying a piece of land.

The plan backfires when the land purchase gets Brad in trouble with the government. Toni, who has fallen for Brad, tries to persuade Zenobia to reveal her deceit, but Zenobia locks her in a closet and flees. Toni has to convince Brad that her love for him is real.
