Heiress Joan Winfield is about to elope and has hired Steve Collins to fly her and her intended to Las Vegas for the nuptials. Joan's father however, strenuously objects to the wedding, and offers Steve some much-needed cash to thwart the plans. Steve agrees and takes only Joan up in the plane. They land in a desert near California -- with Joan's fiance, father and even some reporters in hot pursuit. In the meantime, the long trip and the small confines of the plane begin to get the better of Joan and Steve.
