While crossing the sierras, a bus with a small group of passengers gets stuck in a snowstorm, and take refuge in a church. But, the church is already occupied by criminal Bill (Boyd), who has a small stash of food that he is reluctant to share with the group. Tensions run high between girl criminal Billie Davis (Lombard), who is being transported to jail by Detective Dan Egan (Moore), Henderson the banker, Gus the driver, and a girl who is on her way to get married. It turns out Bill is an escaped criminal, and Billie immediately falls for him. They two briefly plan to flee after the storm lets up, but both decide to serve their sentences so that they have a chance for a crime-free future together. One of Carole Lombard's first talking films.
