Muckraking newspaper columnist Gilbert Nunnally (Philip Ober) wants to ruin a young congressman from Massachusetts, so he assigns ambitious cub reporter Alice Kingsley (Patricia Neal) to dig up some dirt. She approaches the idealistic politician, Joseph Gresham (Van Johnson), and convinces him she is doing a puff piece for a women's magazine.
