Description

Wealthy widow Norah O'Neill wonders if she will ever marry again. When her son decides to close the family's failing toy factory, the manager, a decent man who dances the quickstep beautifully, becomes unemployed. Suddenly, Norah sees her chance for happiness, in a new venture of her own.
