New York assistant district attorney John Sargent is attempting to see Lee Leander locked up for shoplifting a diamond bracelet when the trial is interrupted by the Christmas holidays. Through a misunderstanding, Lee ends up on bail with nowhere to spend the holiday, so Jack takes her with him to Indiana.
