After murdering his unfaithful wife in their apartment, Dr. Ernest Tindal leaves and her lover, Frank, discovers the body. Frank panics and flees, leaving his fingerprints. He is arrested, convicted and condemned to die.

A newspaper reporter, Kirk, and a police captain, McKinley, continue to investigate, particularly after Kirk becomes attracted to Vera, the victim's sister. They successfully prove how Frank was falsely accused while Tindal conspires with gangsters Jack and Julia Reed, still hoping to get away with the crime. Tindal ends up shooting Jack but is taken into custody by McKinley.
