When James Ronald Mulcahy (William Bendix), an Irish American writer, is murdered moments after he has dared God to strike him dead, his murderer (Aldo Ray) looks for help from the man who must decide his fate, the local priest, Father Carey (Nigel Patrick). The killer is tagged "Johnny Nobody" by the press because of his claim to have total amnesia, but further investigation by Carey leads him to question whether or not "Johnny" was acting for God or, as seems more likely, a woman known as Miss Floyd (Yvonne Mitchell) who turns out to be wife.
