When Stella Martin (Stanwyck), a working class woman, meets and marries the wealthy Stephen Dallas (Boles), they quickly have a daughter named Laurel (Shirley). Stella and Stephen struggle to stay happy as their class differences become a problem and decide to separate, with Laurel being caught in the middle of the divorce.
