Inhalt: A traveling entertainer gets more than she bargained for during a stopover in a South American port town. There she meets a handsome yet aloof daredevil pilot, who runs an airmail company, staring down death while servicing towns in treacherous mountain terrain. Both attracted to and repelled by his romantic sense of danger, she decides to stay on, despite his protestations.
