Walter Hale is the manager of a Chautauqua, a rolling canvas college, moving from town to town spreading cultural knowledge. In one particular town Walter gets into plenty of trouble with girls and a few assorted characters during a one-week stand.
Trouble develops between the town locals and the Chautauqua personnel. There is the girl who wants to leave home to join the troupe. There is an illicit love affair that ends in murder. And a romance develops between Walter and Charlene.
