In this suspense movie, a secretary marries her rich old boss. He suddenly dies and she finds herself the prime suspect in his murder. She goes to court and is found guilty. En route to court, she is involved in a near-fatal auto-accident. Within her heart is a small piece of glass that a surgeon removes during a ground-breaking operation. The doctor then discovers that the woman has been given a death sentence. Not wanting to lose the patient he worked so hard to save, the doctor sneaks her out of the hospital and keeps her well hidden until the police accost the real killer.
