In the film, Det. Sgt. Mark Dixon (Andrews) is demoted after his precinct receives complaints that he’s been roughing people up. A disgruntled Dixon then gets involved with Morgan (Tierney), the wife of a sleazy gambler.

Soon Dixon has fallen in love with Morgan – but not before losing his temper again and committing a terrible deed that he tries to cover up…
