A scientist possessing the formula for making a nuclear bomb finds himself chased by evil gangsters in this thriller that was made just after the A-bomb was dropped upon Hiroshima. The crooks catch up to the scientist on a train, knock him unconscious, and toss him off the train. Later he awakens and somehow makes his way to a ranch. There the woman who owns it tends to his wounds and helps him while he recovers from amnesia. They are still plagued by the crooks and she does all she can to help the ailing chemist who doesn't recover until the very last scene. He and the woman then flee across the desert with the villains in hot pursuit. Eventually the two are saved by government authorities who capture the crooks and save the world from a nuclear holocaust.
