Christopher March (David Knight) – a top sales executive for a thriving London firm – is sent by his boss, Alexis Brant (Kevin Brennan) to Paris to negotiate a lucrative new contract with a potential client.
March has done this kind of thing so often before that he has come to look upon himself as little more than a glorified messenger boy for his high-powered employer.
This time his assignment turns out to be far from routine, though, and March is arrested at the airport and charged with the murder of his employer.
Realising he has been framed, he takes desperate measures to prove his innocence. He escapes from the police, determined to find the unknown girl who was with him in a London bar at the time of the murder.
But whoever has carefully framed March is taking steps to make sure that the girl will provide no such alibi.
On the run from the police, March believes he has been framed by his employer’s wife, Elaine Brant (Harriette Johns).
He eventually locates the girl from the bar, Brenda Carpenter (Gene Anderson) and the pair learn that Brant was visited on the night of his murder by a business associate, Henri Clouzot (Harold G. Robert).
With Detective Inspector Fenner (Ewen Solon) in hot pursuit, March and Brenda venture to the scene of the murder – Brant’s luxurious penthouse apartment – to find the real culprit.
