Jack Jansen returns in disgrace to his hometown in Moat County, Florida, after being expelled from college. His newspaper publisher father helps him get a job as a paper boy delivering the newspaper. Soon his older brother Ward, a professional journalist, also returns home, hot on the trail of a major news story that he is covering. Ward's writing partner and a woman in love with a convict destined for the electric chair join Ward with Jack as their driver to help expose the miscarriage of justice that has wrongly sentenced a man to death. Jack isn't certain he can trust the truth of anything as details about the case begin to unravel, but he does maintain a confidence with the family's loyal housekeeper, Anita.
