Serving a jail sentence for a crime he didn't commit, Paul Langley makes several attempts to escape from prison, in order to clear his name. He also has other problems, his wife is about to go into labor with their first baby.
Right from the opening minutes the viewer realizes he's watching an odd motion picture. A man (Lyndon Brook) is an army deserter who has been living in squalor. A bit of good luck finds his way and he lands a good job. He returns home to celebrate with his girlfriend (Jane Hylton), who promptly tells him that she gave up their child for adoption. He strangles her in a fit of rage and slinks off to start a new life.
Five years later, Brook is a successful businessman and he's engaged to a lovely woman (Jill Browne). His successful life unravels very quickly after Browne's apartment is robbed and the detective sent to investigate also worked on the murder five years before. The actors give fine performances, the tale is well written, the film has a nice pace. A well made British crime drama from the late 1950's.
