In prohibition-era Manhattan, shopkeeper Mary Brown loses Aubrey, her childhood sweetheart, when he marries a rich woman. Reporter Steve "Rollo" Porter has lost his childhood sweetheart Elaine, who has also married another.

When their old loves re-enter their lives a few years later, Mary and Steve must decide what is really important to them.
