Century Studio is cutting back on expenses and has decided to drop the option on young actress, Paulette Douglas. In an effort to try to keep Paulette under contract to the studio, Grace Douglas attempts to fix her daughter up with studio exec Johnny Churchill. Paulette is unwilling to sell herself in exchange for a continued contract, and she initially seems unconcerned about the dismissal. Eventually she realizes that her acting career does matter to her, so she sets about to convince the studio brass that she should be kept around. It is her conviction and committment to acting that ultimately causes the studio powers to reconsider and renew her contract.
