A spat on a Hollywood set between stuntman Steve Bennett and actress Laura Marley leads to the two of them falling in love and being married. Steve's work is dangerous and Laura persuades him to quit, but he has difficulty finding a different occupation.

When youthful former colleague Tommy Briggs has a complicated stunt to do, Steve volunteers to take his place, then after being rejected by producer Walter Blake is devastated when Tommy is killed. Steve leaves to become a barnstorming pilot. Blake schemes to lure Steve back for Laura's sake by inventing a romance between her and stuntman Red Garvey. When he returns, Steve ends up involved in yet another life-threatening stunt. He barely survives, but Laura is happy to have him back.
