This independent feature shot on location in Denver features Reynolds as a police officer's widow. Her son, Shanley, is the local paperboy and best friends with another policeman's son, whose father (Coffin) is in love with Reynolds. She won't have anything to do with another policeman for

a husband, however. A second plot line develops as Kennedy, playing a wrestler with a bad heart, steals a fur for his girl friend, Lane. She discovers the fur is stolen and is killed by Kennedy in an argument. Shanley sees the murder while delivering his papers. Kennedy tries to find the boy and

ends up chasing him into an amusement park not yet opened for the day. The climactic chase ends atop a roller coaster where Kennedy suffers a heart seizure. Shanley tries to help the man, but Kennedy realizes his weight will cause both of them to fall so lets go of the boy's hand, plunging to his

death. Coffin rescues Shanley, and Reynolds predictably marries him.
