In search of a better life, a German girl named Willie joins an American carnival that is passing through Munich. While traveling from town to town, she is torn between two suitors: cruel carnival barker Joe and kindhearted high-dive artist Frank . Frank gets the upper hand when he asks Willie to join his act. The partners soon become the most popular attraction at the carnival. But tragedy is only a slip away.
