A murder has been committed and an innocent man is charged with the crime in this fast-paced drama from Manuel M. Delgado. Ricardo decides to go out for a "night on the town" after his wife and children leave to visit relatives. His evening at a nightclub turns complicated when Dolores (Helena Rojo), a woman he has just met, is stranded because her car will not start. Ricardo drives her home and after she invites him up for a nightcap she leaves him alone for a moment. He wanders into the living room and discovers that her husband -- a high-ranking politician -- has been stabbed to death. At that moment police sirens are heard outside and Ricardo decides immediate flight is the only way out. But the police catch up with him and charge him with the murder: his fingerprints are on the knife, his shirt has the man's blood on it, and Dolores says she saw him kill her husband.
