Peg becomes a successful dress designer. Her former husband, band leader and movie star Peter La Plata (Bill Slagg), tries to take their son away from his parents, who are raising the boy in the boarding house where Peg and Annie are staying. (Not knowing that the boy is Peg's son.) Failing in his attempt to get his parents to give him the boy, La Plata breaks his wrist while taking a swing at Sam the tailor, which sets a series of events in motion that leads to his downfall.
