Norman Foster plays a well-known globetrotting millionaire (Tony Sheridan) who has recently lost his fortune. Taking a job as a society reporter for the Daily Herald, he soon finds himself protecting an old flame (Sheila Mannors) from her shady fiancé (Donald Cook) and his gang. He sets out to investigate this man’s activities.

From this point one revolver duel follows another. New light is thrown on recent developments with the help of the police. At the end the criminal gang is smoked out of its lair with tear-gas, and the gang leader is dispatched with a shot-gun.
