This film is based on a novel by the same name.  Danny Kenny is a truck driver who becomes a fighter.  He finds success as a fighter and uses his earnings to pay for his brother Eddie's music composition career.  His girlfriend Peggy becomes a professional dancer and declines to marry him in order to further her career as a dancer.  Things turn bad for Danny after his opponent places rosin dust on his boxing gloves, leaving him slightly blind.  His brother ends up becoming a success and dedicates a symphony at Carnegie Hall to him, which he listens to on the radio.   Peggy is in that audience and runs back to Danny.
