SUNNY is the female star of a circus act in post-World War I England. Trying to escape a forced marriage with the snooty Mr. Wendell-Wendell, she stows away on a ship heading to New York. After many romantic complications involving two war veterans and their fiancées, Sunny eventually finds love (and U.S. citizenship) as the newly married wife of Jim Deering.
