He has come to confront gangster Frank Hugo who is responsible for the death of Gagin’s war buddy and intends to extort the criminal for a sizable sum of money or he will send the check to the police. As it turns out an FBI agent in town, Bill Retz has been tracking Hugo and intends to bring him to justice and when he discovers that Gagin has a telltale piece of evidence that can help he lets the man know he wants it.

When young waif Pila attaches herself to Gagin and introduces him to the local carousel owner Pancho, a drinking friendship is formed and Gagin gets to sleep in a small shack owned by Pancho.
