Nightclub singer Angie Evans (Susan Hayward) puts aside her successful career to marry struggling songwriter Ken Conway (Lee Bowman). Inspired by the birth of their daughter, Ken plays one of his ballads on a morning radio show, and his career explodes. As a stay-at-home wife and mother, Angie finds her shaky self-confidence slipping. Convinced Ken is having an affair with his secretary (Marsha Hunt), Angie begins drinking. When Ken files for divorce, Angie responds by kidnapping their daughter.
