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. As Mabel and Vic perform their act one night, a customer unhappy about a dirty plate causes a disruption. When Wilmot goes back to the kitchen to investigate, he finds several employees in the scullery watching Shosho, one of the dishwashers, dancing on a table. Wilmot fires both Shosho and Victor that night, but the club's sagging fortunes soon lead him to re-evaluate Shosho's talent.
