In this crime drama, a psychiatrist is fond of using hypnotism to help his clients. One day a test pilot comes in. He is troubled by blackouts that are affecting his job. This is the perfect opportunity for the psycho shrink who has been looking for someone to murder his wife. He places the pilot under hypnosis and orders him to commit the crime. But the ploy doesn't work and the pilot does not kill her. The angry doctor then kills the woman himself, but frames the pilot. It is the pilot's devoted fiancee who investigates and reveals the gruesome truth.
