Having been framed for a crime Tom Penney returns to his home village having served his time in prison. There he is considered to be a crook and is treated like an outcast, particularly when a murder occurs in the town and everyone accuses him. Even the police believe he is guilty and a hunt is initiated but by a small piece of fortune he finds evidence that incriminates the real killer and it is a race against time for him to confront them before he is caught.
