A dancer known as Lou Lorraine feels her life is going nowhere. She is married to Jim, who is working as a pianist at the same cabaret in a small village Lou is working at. One day, a man nicknamed "Dangerous Dan" McGrew promises to make a big star on Broadway out of her, after which she immediately leaves with him.
