Small town politician and banker Brent Warren (Robert McKim) is responsible for a murder, but only George Roan (Joseph J. Dowling) is sent to the gallows for it. Roan, however, is resuscitated after he is hung and proceeds to secretly haunt Warren's life. District attorney Cullen Grant (Roy Stewart) is sure that Warren was behind the killing and has him arrested. Warren's fiancee, Dare Keeling (Fritzi Brunette), also happens to the Grant's ex-sweetheart, and she believes in his innocence. Her brother, Larry (George Fisher), however, isn't so sure and he goes to work as Warren's secretary.
