Steve Lacey (Gene Nelson) has tried to stay away from crime since he was released from prison: he’s newly married and has a decent job. But when his former cellmate escapes from the penitentiary along with two other hardened criminals, Lacey risks his own parole and helps the three hide from the police out of fear of what they might do to his wife (Phyllis Kirk). Now the escaped cons pressure Lacey to help them in a robbery, but have they gone too far? And how far will dogged detective Lieutenant Sims (Sterling Hayden) go to hunt the gang down?
