Tony Arcatti is on the run from the police and a rival mob. He takes refuge in Constance Meredith's basement on New York's East Side. These two strong willed individuals produce many comic sparks in their confrontation with each other. Tony thinks he's macho and a big time gangster, but Constance sees beneath the facade and convinces him he is capable of much more. He also makes her face the truth about herself. Into this situation comes Iris Hanson, Constance's friend. She is a pseudo intellectual and when she discovers Tony's identity, she is kept prisoner too. Fred Conklin, Constance's old boy friend, makes a surprise visit and is detained too. Millie Papendrou, Tony's love interest, also becomes enmeshed in these proceedings. These five characters become involved in various comic situations which make pertinent comments on love, life and friendship.
