In this noir thriller, a couple of hard cases have impersonated policemen in order to rob a mail truck. Not only is the mail truck driver killed, but one of the two robbers decides to kill the other one and shoots him, absconding with the loot. The robber who was shot survived and was sentenced to serve time in prison. Despite the temptation to name the man who did him wrong (and made off with their money), he keeps his silence. Instead, when he gets a short leave from prison, he goes to the town where his unsuspecting partner now lives. The former robber has married, become the mayor of the town and is running for nationwide office: Minister of Justice, no less! During a political rally, the mayor spots the man he thought he had killed and has a fright. The thieving mayor tries to buy off the man he wronged, but the convict has plans which will make election day one to remember.
