Wealthy John Preston arrives in the small town of Deanbridge and invests in local businesses. Getting increasingly involved in community affairs he meets a local girl, Sally. Winning her away from her boyfriend she agrees to marry him. He then starts to have strange dreams about Sylvia, a beautiful woman from his past, who comes to Deanbridge to blackmail him. In his dream, Preston strangles the scheming woman, but is then confronted by a strange Frenchman. He tells his dream to Dr. Walton, who feels Preston is suppressing things in his past, and should regain his memory before marrying Sally.

Being a Danziger production minimal costs were expended on locations and the majority of the action takes place in the studio.
