Financially irresponsible Giant manages a jazz group, but his sax player, Shadow, wants to replace him with a better businessman. Bleak, the band's trumpeter, tries to defend Giant, leading to a power struggle between the two musicians.

As Bleak tries to straighten things out with his band mates and manager, he must also choose to be with either sweet teacher Indigo or sultry singer Clarke.
