Summary
Relocated to a Southern military base, Joe is a soldier about to leave for flying school, and planning to marry his longtime sweetheart Cindy Lou before he goes. But free-spirited parachute packer Carmen interferes when Joe is tasked with delivering her to jail after she gets into a vicious fight with another woman. This begins their stormy romance, and ends with Joe AWOL, the pair on the run in Chicago, and Carmen deserting Joe for professional boxer Husky Miller. Undone by her fickleness, Joe's passion for Carmen has tragic consequences
