It is lawyer John Corbin's (J. Barney Sherry) contention that a man can murder his wife, then beat the rap by pleading temporary insanity. Corbin's doctor friend Richard Hyde (Howard Davis) decides to test this theory after killing his supposedly faithless spouse. At this point, the film aimlessly wanders off with a subplot concerning Corbin's son John Jr. (Eugene Corey) and Hyde's daughter Wyliss (Pauline Starke). It is possible, although not certain, that "Eugene Corey" was actually prolific character actor Gino Corrado, briefly attempting to enter the leading-man category. Evidence was also released as The Argument.
