Synopsis / Plot
Nick Bianco is a small-time hoodlum and thief who is shot and arrested after he and three others hold up an exclusive jewelry store. The District Attorney, Louis D'Angelo offers to go easy on him if he'll implicate his fellow thieves but Bianco wont cooperate. After spending about three years in prison, he learns that his wife has committed suicide and that his two little girls are in an orphanage. He seeks out the DA and makes an arrangement to get evidence on a vicious killer, Tommy Udo. When Udo is found not guilty at his trial, Bianco, who has re-married and is now an upstanding citizen, is sure he will come after him.
