Peter Colton, a bank official, unwittingly comes home with the loot from a bank robbery masterminded by Willy Nicholas, his superior at the bank. Willy, frantic to retrieve the money, enlists Peter's services to help him find it, with the help of Victoria Wickey, Peter's secretary. Meantime, Laurel Colton, Peter's daughter, has found the loot and erroneously supposes it is her father who has robbed the bank, so she enlists the aid of her boy friend Carlos Ortega, whose uncle is a retired forger of passports, to help her father flee the country. But the arrival of Sheila Mahoney, a travel agent who is helping Peter plan a surprise vacation to Rio for Laurel, complicates matters even further, since thanks to another plot afoot she thinks Victoria is married to Willy and planning a honeymoon in Rio for the two of them. By the time Victoria shows up with Peter's and Laurel's passports for the surprise vacation, Willy shows up with his and Victoria's passports for a quick escape, and Carlos shows up with a pair of forged passports to help Laurel and Peter escape, everybody is in an ungodly mess, the police may close in any minute, all concerned are fearfully mistaken about everyone else's motives and loyalties, and doom and shame and prison stare them all in the face.
