A baby is abandoned at the United Nations headquarters in New York by a mother who heard the UN's Frank Larrimore speak out on behalf of children's rights via a radio show. Found by UN guide Lisette, she brings the baby to the security office.

Because the baby is in international territory, her nationality unknown, Frank (a proud bachelor) is begrudgingly forced to take the baby back to his apartment until a proper home can be found. His landlord forbids kids, so Frank smuggles the child into his apartment.

Lisette initially finds Frank to be abrasive and unfit to take care of a child, and believes Frank and his pal Randy are using it as a way to meet beautiful, wedding-minded single women. But, Lisette eventually reads his proposal for the "Universal Rights of a Child', and they fall in love. After a series of mishaps, Frank finally earns her forgiveness and love, and they adopt the baby.
