The movie tells the story, between 1918 and the early thirties, of three men who met on the battlefield during WWI. After the war, Jeffrey Lynn will become a corporation lawyer and James Cagney a cab driver. As the Prohibition period begins, Cagney will earn a "big shot" status by producing and selling low quality alcoholic beverages. He'll also develop a criminal partnership with the no-good Humphrey Bogart. But he won't be able to win the heart of the singer Priscilla Lane to whom he's offered a night-club. The young woman will finally choose the lawyer Jeffrey Lynn.
