Phyllis Holmes (Ella Raines) has resigned herself to being too plain-looking to attract men. All this changes when Phyllis is injured in an auto accident. Plastic surgery transforms Phyllis into a vision of loveliness, but there's more to it than that: the surgery was financed by an unknown benefactor, who disappears after the girl recovers. Determined to find the man who cared enough to give her a new lease on life, Phyllis spends the rest of the picture trying to find him, convinced that he's in love with her. The results are surprising for both Phyllis and the audience. Second Face wavers uncertainly between straight romance and psychological melodrama.
