Tim falls head over heels for one of his fares, burlesque dancing beauty Sadie O'Brien (Grace Bradley), and the feeling is mutual. Unfortunately, a dangerous gangster masquerading as a club owner also has eyes for Sadie, and his jealousy could wreck both Tim's budding romance and the fledgling cab company.
