Arrested for fatally beating an elderly widow, Barbara Graham, a vagrant prostitute and fast-living party girl, at first goads the police, refusing to answer their questions. But when an alleged accomplice turns state's evidence, Graham insists that she's innocent. Condemned by the press and the public, she is found guilty of murder and sentenced to die in the gas chamber. As her execution draws nearer, Graham desperately attempts to expose the truth and save her life against all odds. The background music is made up in its entirety of progressive jazz
