Three young American women come to Madrid in search of romance and adventure.
Maggie Williams finds a job as a secretary with an American news agency and falls in love with bureau chief Paul Barton, who is married. When Barton eventually realizes that he loves his wife and family more than Maggie, Maggie turns to Pete Stenello, a handsome young reporter who has admired her since her arrival in Spain.
Fran, an ambitious, passionate singer and dancer, has a weekend affair with Andrés Briones, a shy provincial doctor who tries not to become involved with Fran but falls in love in spite of himself.
Meanwhile, Susie Higgins has an affair with wealthy playboy Emilio Lacaye, who proposes marriage merely to fulfill his romantic desires but later realizes that he loves Susie and makes good his promise.
The affairs culminate at a party given by Paul Barton before he and his family return to the United States.
