Rusty Wells is hired by Chicago nightclub owner Big Frank to keep an eye on his daughter Valerie, while she is on vacation in Fort Lauderdale. The job involves Rusty in one complication after another.
There is a riot in a nightclub; Rusty interrupts a shipboard rendezvous between Valerie and her amorous admirer Romani by removing the cruiser from the water, trundling it through the streets of the resort town, and depositing Valerie in her room. After Valerie gets arrested for disorderly conduct at a nightclub, Rusty digs a tunnel under the jail to get her out. Finally Rusty succumbs to Valerie's charms and all ends well.
