Harrison Fell is an advertising executive who comes with a brilliant publicity stunt for one of the company's major clients, a safe manufacturer that claims to have created a burglar-proof safe. He asks Sammy Morrisey, once billed as the world's greatest safe cracker, to try to break into the safe. Morrisey isn't keen on the idea as he now has a new profession and has tried to put those days behind him. As an incentive, Morrisey is told that an envelope with $50,000 will be put in the safe and if he can break in, he gets to keep the money. Morrisey accepts the offer, with surprising results for all.
