When Dorothy Lyons (Dahl) is released from prison on parole she is given over to the care of her sister June (Fleming) who works as a secretary for political candidate Frank Jansen (Kent Taylor). Despite seeing this as an opportunity to discredit Jansen and his cause, organised crime associate Ben Grace (Payne) has a disagreement with crime boss Solly Caspar (Ted de Corsia) and decides to help June. Ben falls for June, Dorothy falls for Ben, and June is drawn into Ben's scheming.
