The star attraction of the Piccadilly Club is the dancing team of Mabel and Vic. Victor is infatuated with Mabel, but she rejects his advances since she is in love with Valentine Wilmot, the club's owner. One night, as Mabel and Vic perform their act, a disruption leads Wilmot back to the kitchen and he finds several employees in the scullery watching Shosho, one of the dishwashers, dancing on a table. That night, Wilmot fires both Shosho and Victor. but the club's sagging fortunes soon lead him to re-evaluate Shosho's talent.
