A talented and prolific inventor dies penniless and unknown, even though his creations are about as commonplace as staplers. A jewel thief son blames his life of crime on the wrongs that befell his father. Add some mob connections that taint both men's lives and a final reunion between father and son, and you've got the story of Walter Thiel Shaw, a notorious former jewel thief and aspiring film producer in this film that is a tribute to his father, Walter L. Shaw.
