Taut, grim crime film starring Hartnell as an ex-convict who, upon his release from a 15-year prison sentence for a murder that never happened, sets out to find his "victim" and clear his name. Obsessed with righting the wrong that was done to him, Hartnell lets nothing stand in his way.
The crazed Hartnell eventually tracks down the man and kills him in front of a shocked courtroom. Having already been tried and having served his sentence for the murder, Hartnell dares the courts to do it again. Powerful.
