Medical student Monique Brahm moves from Berlin to Munich to live with her uncle Eberhard Adler to continue her studies there. The strict uncle, who works as a city councilor, had learned that she had to work on the side to finance her studies. However, he does not know that she performed at night as a gogo dancer with the musicians of the Mark Brothers group. The Mark Brothers get an engagement in the nightclub Blow-Up from owner Conny Angel. However, he has contracted the group with Monique and so the commitment threatens to burst. The Mark Brothers convince Monique to dance with them until they have found an adequate replacement. Monique, in turn, meets the student Peter Mertens at university, who falls in love with her.
Eberhard Adler has long wanted to close the blow-up. In addition to his dominant wife Grethe, the driving force is also his brother-in-law Alois Kranz. Alois knows a brewery owner who would like to turn the big club into a pub. Since numerous complaints have been received recently from residents who want to see the club closed for moral reasons, politician Eberhard would be right to end the blow-up for career-related reasons. During an inspection tour with the moral inspector Hummel, both men end up in the blow-up and there in the large pool. A reporter from the Viennese PornoPress publishing house photographs the piquant scene on behalf of Conny. Eberhard feels at home in the club, is dried by Conny's friend Inga and later invited to a tour of the city's strip clubs.
Hummel receives the photos of the evening in the mail, so that he and Eberhard cannot take any further steps against the blow-up. Hummel goes to Vienna to have the pictures published by the publisher. Eberhard, on the other hand, has not spent the night at home and is confronted by Grethe on his return. He invents an adventurous story about a found former school friend named Konstantin who is a wealthy shipowner. He spent the night with him and his wife, who was plagued by migraines. Conny, who found out about Monique Eberhard's identity, actually wanted to talk to him about the future of blow-up and now unwillingly overhears the fictional story at the door. He knocks and pretends to be Constantine. Grethe is impressed and invites him to eat and sleep with his wife. She doesn't know that Conny, who appears with Inga, records all conversations using a hidden microphone. During the night Grethe tries to get to Conny, whom she adored. Eberhard wants to see Inga and Conny at the end of the club. Locked doors and the house dog, various window entrances and the house staff lead to numerous chaotic situations.
The next day Alois appears and tries to persuade Conny to do lazy deals with Greek ships. He tells him that he and Eberhard have been bribed for a long time. Even if Eberhard is clear that Conny now has enough against him to keep the blow-up, he cannot defend himself against being caught by Alois and Grethe in a plan to close the club. Only Conny's tape recorder with the recorded conversations and the photos from the PornoPress publishing house make it clear to everyone involved that they shouldn't do anything. The cassette is stolen from the house dog and a wild chase begins for the evidence. Only Monique does not participate and prefers to drive away with her new boyfriend Peter.
