Synopsis
An idealistic newspaperman gets a tip from a detective that the mob has moved into his home town. When he uncovers a gambling racket, the detective is murdered, and the police won't do anything to help. Soon the reporter is on the run from a shadowy crime lord, without a friend in the world.
