Tagline: Waiting–always waiting–in the shadows of the back streets…longing for the man she loves…asking nothing, receiving nothing–yet content to sacrifice all for him. WHY?
In early 1900’s Cincinnati, young and beautiful Ray Schmidt works in her father’s shop by day and stays out late drinking beer and dancing by night, although her stepmother disapproves. Ray dates for fun, mostly going out with traveling salesmen passing through town. Neither she nor her dates are interested in any permanent attachment. An exception is Kurt Shendler, who owns a bicycle shop near Mr. Schmidt’s shop and aspires to get into the automobile business. Kurt is in love with Ray and asks her to marry him, but she refuses because while she likes Kurt, she doesn’t return his romantic feelings. While visiting the train station with Kurt, Ray meets Walter Saxel and the two fall for each other at first sight.
