In a simple story which should have been dramatic and suspenseful but ends up rather flat, an inmate gets out of prison after serving his sentence for killing a friend who had insulted his mother. He goes to his sister's house to find out who told the police he had murdered this friend, and his sister reveals the shocking news that their mother was hardly a saint but was, in fact, a prostitute. On leaving her house, the murderer comes up against his destiny in the form of someone out for revenge -- it seems his release from prison involved testifying against another prisoner, and now he is faced with the consequences.
