A wounded gangster staggers into a small-town drugstore and dies. Frankie, the soda jerk, and his pal Jefferson are reluctant witnesses. Unfortunately, the mob believes that the slain man revealed the location of a fortune in stolen loot to Frankie and Jeff before dying. With the gangsters hot on their heels, the duo race to identify the killer before they become his next victims.
