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. She swears on staying faithful to her husband, promising to earn money to have Jim and her son sent to New York. Jim, however, does not trust Dan and follows them to New York, where everything goes out of hand.
