When a man is framed for a crime he didn't commit, his socially intimidated lawyer is reluctant to take the case. The barrister finally agrees, but does nothing to help in his defense. Political pressure is exerted to find the man guilty, and the guilty man is blackmailed into really committing a crime when the punishment is of lesser consequence than the first offense with which he is charged. The accused becomes even more determined to prove his innocence and become an accepted member of the social elite.
