Ambitious young lawyer John Mason (James Stewart) cuts short his honeymoon with new wife Jane (Carole Lombard) when his curmudgeonly boss, Judge Doolittle (Charles Coburn), demands he return to work. Doolittle, who had wanted John to marry his daughter Eunice (Ruth Weston), gives the partnership John had been angling for to his daughter’s new beau, Carter (Donald Briggs). But when tragedy strikes the young couple, John finds he must beg his recalcitrant boss for the money to save the day.
