Max Dembo is out on parole and forced to endure the abuse of his sadistic parole officer Earl Frank. The harder Max tries to go straight, the more he is harassed by Frank. Finally, Max decides that he and his fellow ex-convicts are never going to be able to find honest work and he goes back into stealing with another "reformed" criminal, Jerry Schue. But their plan goes badly, largely due to Max's personal flaws.
