1929, Chicago. Hildy Johnson, brillante cronista, annuncia al proprio capo, il brutale Walter Burns, che intende sposarsi. Pur di non perdere l’efficiente giornalista, Walter lo incarica di occuparsi della cronaca di un’esecuzione capitale: la situazione si complicherà quando il condannato a morte fuggirà proprio nella sala stampa.
