In this war drama, two buddies in WW I return stateside. One of them becomes a police sergeant, but the other cannot find work and begins running booze for a small-time bootlegger. He gets greedy and sets up his own operation, thereby enraging his former employer. When the young smuggler's brother is killed, the smuggler kills his old boss. The police sergeant captures him and he is sentenced to die in the electric chair. When the fateful day arrives, the cop and a nurse, who also served with them in the war, accompany him to his death.
