Family melodrama about the turbulent relationship between the owner of a dance school, Shimada, and his rebellious daughter, Misora. Shimada hopes his daughter will take over the dance school, but she has no interest in the family business. She is too wrapped up in her affair with a jazz

musician, much to the dismay of her father. Her affair soon ends, giving one of her father's prize pupils, Kitagami, the hope that he may marry Misora someday. This dream is shattered when she takes up with a singer, Mori, and they begin performing in nightclubs together. Shimada demands that

Misora stop seeing Mori, but she refuses. Meanwhile, the angry Kitagami decides to open his own dance school and steals most of Shimada's staff to do it. Totally demoralized, Shimada falls ill and decides to forgive his daughter and apologize. Sensing that Mori needs to survive on his own for

awhile, Misora dumps him and concentrates on her own career. When she needs money for an important recital, her old boy friend, the jazz musician, gives it to her. He tells her the money is from the advance Mori received when he signed with an agent. The film ends on an upbeat note with all the

performers at work and successful.
