After being told he has only six months to live, Dyall decides to settle an old account. He hires a man to kill him and make the murder look like the work of Brander, who had wrongly sent Dyall to prison. However, the reports of Dyall's terminal illness prove to be false and, what's
more, his hit man has died. Brander still puts the muscle on Dyall, though, who is forced to shoot his former nemesis in self defense. Dyall's life is now free of burdens, unlike that of the viewer who has wasted 59 minutes sitting through this. There's not a gram of believability in the plot and
the cast just goes through the motions.
