Die Wiener Ballettmeisterin Lydia Sanina kämpft um das Überleben ihrer Truppe, deren letzte Tourneen wenig erfolgreich waren. Zudem beginnt eine der Tänzerinnen, die sich übergangen fühlt, offensiv gegen sie zu intrigieren. Da begegnet ihr der charmante Amerikaner Charlie. Sie verliebt sich Hals über Kopf und entschließt sich zur Heirat. Das spontane Glück wird kurzzeitig bedroht, da ein Missverständnis sie glauben lässt, ihr Angetrauter hintergehe sie mit dem neuen Ensemblemitglied Leni.

The Viennese ballet master, Lydia Sanina, is fighting for the survival of her troupe, whose most recent tours have been lackluster. One of the dancers, who feels by-passed, aggressively starts to intrigue against Lydia. Lydia meets the charming American, Charline and falls head over heels in love with him. She's going to marry him. But their spontaneous happiness is quickly threatened, when a misunderstanding leads Lydia to believe that he's stepping out on her with another member of the ensemble - Leni.
