Jimmy Dolan, a boxer with an unseemly private life, accidently kills a reporter when drunk. Under an assumed identity, he takes refuge on a health farm for disabled children. Faced with closure, it seems that a local boxing competition could be its salvation - if a dogged detective doesn't find him first.
