Jimmy Hughes (Preston Foster), a wealthy and eccentric lawyer loses a bet and has to work a day digging a ditch in his suit. While on the job Trudy Olson (Joan Fontaine), the daughter of the mayor, who is up for reelection, stops by to campaign. Being the smarmy talker that he is, they strike up a conversation. As they fall into disagreement, Trudy suggests that Jimmy run himself, and in an empty threat he says he will. The newspaper picks up the story, and Jimmy is swept up into politics and drawn close to Trudy, striking up an unlikely romance.
