Elda is superstitious and believes in astrology. Fortune-teller Madame Boiseau says Elda will fall in love with someone whose name begins with “J,” and then Elda meets civil engineering graduate Jud. Jud gets a job with a construction firm, but Madame Boiseau warns Elda that she sees “someone you love…falling like a star!” Elda tells Jud’s boss that Jud is a fake so he’ll be fired from his work on a high-rise building. A newspaper story exposes Madame Boiseau and “the superstitions racket.” Elda clears Jud’s name and they get back together.
