A reporter who is witness to a murder wants to write a sensational report for his magazine. So he goes in search of the murderer on his own but in due course he is suspected as being the murderer. He is followed by the police and, after a number of adventures, he manages not only to reveal the real murderer but also to win the heart of the girl of his dreams. (According to an article appearing in the press at the time the film was made.)
