Cynical Eddie spends most of his time hustling suckers at the pool hall, much to the dismay of his girlfriend, Sally. Her mother and stepfather disapprove of Eddie's lifestyle and lack of steady employment and demand that the two stop seeing each other. Instead, the couple secretly marry, but Eddie, despite his best efforts, has trouble finding a job. He becomes increasingly desperate, and eventually is on the verge of giving up entirely.
