Henrietta Von Harmon works as a taxi dancer in Chicago, circa 1935, after her father’s suicide and the family’s subsequent decline into poverty. When the dance hall matron turns up murdered, aloof Inspector Clive Howard appears and convinces Henrietta to go undercover for him at a burlesque theater in Chicago’s gritty underworld. As the investigation progresses, however, the lovely Henrietta and the impenetrable Inspector find themselves drawn to each other in most unsuitable ways.
