The film recounts the troubled circumstances leading to a marriage between a singer and her lover. The plot is complicated by a pregnancy, social barriers to the woman's occupation as a singer that threaten to disrupt the marriage plans, parental objections and threats and manipulations from a cabaret owner who seeks to exert control over his popular singer as she ponders resignation from her job.
