Bud and Gibby then throw a drunken hotel party with bootleg liquor that gets out of hand and a young woman is hit on the head and accidentally killed. Bud and Vida go gambling and drinking to escape the cops, but they are caught and arrested with everyone else from the party. Eventually, the police find the real killer and release everyone.
