New York 1922: Millie Dillmount steps off the train from Salina, Kansas, determined to make a new life in the big city: this means bobbing her hair, wearing short skirts, cavorting in Speakeasies and marrying her boss - the richer, the better. She takes up residence at a hotel for single girls where she meets the fluttery starlet Miss Dorothy and the two girls quickly become friends.

Despite appearances, the Priscilla Hotel, run by the diabolical proprietress Mrs. Meers, turns out to be a front for a white slavery ring. Mrs Meers, with the help of her henchmen Bun Foo and Ching Ho, plots to kidnap Miss Dorothy.

Millie meets the young Jimmy Smith but, having landed a job with the Sincere Trust Insurance Company, sets her sights on her wealthy boss Trevor Graydon III. Although Millie and Jimmy are attracted to each other the unemployed Jimmy is as far from her plan to marry as a girl can get. Unresponsive to Millie’s advances however, Trevor Graydon, is soon smitten with Miss Dorothy.

When her motto "reason over romance" falters, Millie turns to Jimmy's singing star friend Muzzy Van Hossmere for advice. Muzzy encourages her to follow her heart. But nothing appears to be turning out as planned. As the plot unravels, will love finally conquer all?
