As they enter her bedroom Jo discovers that her husband has been stabbed to death and threatens to accuse Tom of the stabbing unless he helps dispose of the body. After arriving home the next morning and remembering very little, Tom learns that he is wanted by the police for the murder. In order to prove his innocence, Tom has to stay one step ahead of the police in a race against time to discover the true identity of the killer.
