Eddie, a three-time loser, tries to go straight with his bride Jo in a hostile society. They are caught up in an inescapable web of circumstantial evidence. What was apparently a realistic variant on the Bonnie and Clyde story in script form, under Lang's direction, became a dark, expressionistic tale of persecuted innocence. The film ironically reverses the legal tenet that one is innocent until proven guilty. Eddie's guilt is assumed but he is actually guilty only at the moment when his innocence is finally established
