Faced with total financial ruin, businessman Clark blackmails his pal Carpenter into murdering him within the next five days so wife Gregory will have some money from the insurance policy. However, Clark's situation unexpectedly changes and he desperately searches for his friend in order

to stop the killing. After coming close to being killed several times, Clark learns his partner, Forwood, is in cahoots with Gregory to murder him. They have kidnaped Carpenter and framed him, but the two would-be killers end up shooting themselves. Had it been done with any style, this film could

have been another DOUBLE INDEMNITY. However the script gives only perfunctory scenes and motivations, which aren't helped any by the spotty talents of the cast.
