Average California teenager Florence Farley (Sally Forrest) accepts an invitation to an exclusive country club from handsome Gordon McKay (Robert Clarke). When Florence's skill as a tennis player begins to attract attention, her manipulative mother, Milly (Claire Trevor), pressures her to join the competitive tennis circuit for women despite the misgivings of her more unassuming husband, Will (Kenneth Patterson). As Florence's fame grows, so does her mother's ambition and chicanery.
