In this crime drama, a teen sees a racket boss go down during a gangland hit. The boy tries to tell the cops, but the crooked police chief, in cahoots with the mob, instead tries to blame the killing on the boy. Terrified, the youth takes off and hides out on Skid Row. He is stalked by a professional killer. Eventually he runs to his girlfriend's house. He tells her that her father, the police chief, is part of the gangsters. They begin looking for proof. When the crooks catch up to the teens, a gunfight erupts. The two youths are hurt, but the gangsters end up killing each other.
