Professional hitman Jim Derry (Richard Kiley) is contracted to bump off a bookie named Eddie Breech (Richard Long). But when Jim meets Breech's wheelchair-bound wife, Connie (Anne Francis), he takes pity on the woman and changes his mind. Generously, Jim offers to fake Breech's death so that Eddie and Connie can escape to Mexico and start life anew. Our hero's next step is to find a "replacement" corpse so it will appear that he has fulfilled his contract...only to find out that his grand gesture has been wasted on a master con artist.
