Millionaire industrialist Walter Williams (Brian Donlevy) has a young wife, Irene Williams (Helen Walker), who is trying to kill him with the help of her young lover, Jim Torrence (Tony Barrett). The plan falls apart when Williams survives a hit on the head from the would-be-killer. Attempting to flee the scene in Williams’ Packard convertible, Torrence dies in a fiery head-on collision. At this point, it is believed that Williams was the driver.

The dazed Williams ends up in the fictional town of Larkspur, Idaho. He gets a job as a service station mechanic and falls in love with Marsha Peters (Ella Raines), the station’s owner. Meanwhile, the police arrest Williams’ wife for his “murder.” After Marsha eventually persuades Walter to go back to clear his wife, he is charged with murdering Torrence. Marsha enlists the help of kindly police detective Lt. Tom Quincy (Charles Coburn) to prove Walter’s innocence.
