    Sue Barton inherits a bankrupt resort hotel. With help from her musician brother and his bandmates, Sue tries to keep the hotel running.
    They redo the ballroom for a concert by the DeFranco Family. (For some unexplained reason, the remodeled "ballroom" looks exactly like the set of American Bandstand!!) The DeFranco concert appears to be a success...until the ballroom's electricity goes out. Sue and her friends rig some extension cords together, and the DeFranco Family are able to complete their concert.
