A wealthy man (William Mong) is murdered just before he is about to change his will and his son (Don Dillaway) is put on trial for his murder. This is basically a court room drama with the key performances coming from H B Warner and Edmund Breese as defence and prosecuting lawyers. The events leading up to the murder as told in flash backs from the perspective of each witness. This is a solid, though very wordy, courtroom drama.
