Bruce Armstrong, a young man with a history of drinking and gambling ills, agrees to be part of a diamond-smuggling operation in order to pay off his debts to Tom Canfield, a corrupt Broadway producer. Armstrong completes his task, but he kills another conspirator, Big Joe Snead, in a fight after the diamonds are taken by a third conspirator, Dude Talbot. Shortly before Armstrong is to die in the electric chair, Talbot confesses to the police that he had pilfered the diamonds, that Snead was a ruthless killer, and that Armstrong certainly killed Snead in self-defense.
