1940s mystery in which a drunken sailor awakes to find a large sum of money on his person and is consequently drawn into a dark mystery. Alex (Bill Williams), like any self-respecting sailor on leave, enjoys a drink, but perhaps this time he has gone too far. Convinced that the money belongs to a girl called Edna (Lola Lane) who he was pursuing the night before, he sets out to return it to her. However, when Alex discovers Edna dead, the stakes are raised and he finds himself struggling to convince others - and himself - that he isn't a murderer. Susan Hayward co-stars.
