Joe falls in love with aspiring actress Julia Grant, a young woman with more ambition than talent. He promises Julia that he'll help her with her career, so he seeks advice from the greatest actor of their time: Edwin Booth, who's performing in Virginia City.


Little Joe meets a beautiful woman who tells her of her dreams of becoming an actress. She is a widow with a young son, and Little Joe is drawn by both sympathy and attraction to help her. He arranges a job for her as a singer in high-class saloon.

Her first performance is a success, but the attention of male customers piques Joe's jealousy, and a brawl ensues.

Despite this and other setbacks, Joe falls in love with her. However, he finds that he must find a way to deal with his feelings when confronted by her success on the stage.
