Belinha De Rezende (Dolores del Río) is engaged to Julio Rubeiro (Raul Roulien). Roger Bond (Gene Raymond), pursuing her, intends to take her away from Julio. Fred Ayres (Fred Astaire) and Honey Hale (Ginger Rogers) are entertainers in Roger's band, which is headlining the entertainment in the new Miami-based hotel built by Belinha's father (Walter Walker). Her father's ability to pay for his loan is threatened when a syndicate prevents him from obtaining an entertainment license. People will not come to a hotel that lacks entertainment. Roger fills the hotel with guests by staging a startling outdoor entertainment: beautiful young women flying (securely attached) on the wings of biplanes. Julio, realizing that Belinha loves Roger, breaks their engagement.
