Idealistic young attorney John Norton (Robert Lowery) finds himself on the Road to Alcatraz when he's accused of murdering his partner. Norton would like to protest his innocence, but can't, since he has no memory of the events leading up to the killing. Investigating on his own, he discovers that he was drugged by the actual murderer-but whoooo is it? The key to the mystery is a fraternity pin found at the scene of the crime. June Storey has practically nothing to do as Norton's supportive wife Kit, while Grant Withers has a bit too much to do in the stereotypical role of Inspector Craven.
