Upon his release from his jail for writing bad checks, Johnny is hired as a short order cook in a diner after mastering his cooking skills in jail. It's love at first sight for Johnny when he sees Frankie, a depressed, preoccupied waitress. He makes attempts that are too direct and for awhile they clash. Then Johnny reveals his depression over his now divorced wife and kids, who have a new husband, father, and world without him. This helps Frankie finally speak up about her mysterious past.
