Questioned as a murder suspect, solid (but drunk) citizen Al Willis attacks
his police questioners, is beaten, and swears vengeance against them.
Next night, Lieut. Parks is murdered; Willis is the only suspect in the eyes
of tough Chief Conroy, who pursues him doggedly despite lack of
evidence. The obsessed Conroy is dismissed from the force, but
continues to harass Willis, who flees to a sleazy town on the Mexican
border. Of course, Conroy follows. But which is crazy, Conroy or Willis?
