Aging movie star Alexandra del Lago, also known as Princess Kosmonopolis, fears her career is overdue to her fading youthful looks. She takes up with a handsome young man, Chance Wayne, who once had promise as an actor, but who has fallen into the life of a gigolo. Together, they travel to Chance's hometown, where he hopes to regain the love of his one-time girlfriend Heavenly Finley. But Chance's departure years before has destroyed Heavenly's possibilities of a happy life, and her father, Tom "Boss" Finley wants revenge on Chance. Chance hopes to take Heavenly with him to start the movie career he believes the Princess offers him, but she is so fragile in her dread of lost youth that no one's dreams seem likely to come true.
