Playboy Larry Thomas Jr.'s extravagant lifestyle causes him to lose his position at his father's bank, and he's assigned to serve as assistant district attorney. On the night before his first day on the job, he takes his girlfriend, city desk reporter Kit Van Buren, to a seedy gambling den run by gangsters. When a woman is shot down in the club, Larry and Kit are drawn into a whirlwind of murder and deception. During his investigation, Larry discovers a second body. Framed for the killing, Larry finds himself on the run from the law.
