When the faithless wife of architect Paul Sampson (Barry Sullivan) demands a divorce, he goes berserk and kills her. The police rule that the death was an accident, but it isn't long before Paul is tortured by the pangs of conscience. He decides to confess to the murder and take the consequences -- only to find that no one believes him. Well, almost no one: Paul does manage to convince Judge David Wilcox (Louis Hayward), who, as it turns out, has a vested interest in the case.
