Charlie, who is working his way through Harvard law school, picks up a little extra cash by driving a flashy sports car for delivery in Atlantic City. Enroute the car breaks down and a cab driver, thinking Charlie a high roller, takes him to an illegal gambling house. Charlie wins a bundle in a poker game, only to find out he's incurred the wrath of a gangster who is a very sore loser. In the ensuing fight, the gangster is accidently killed and Charlie is on the run with an army of gangsters in hot pursuit.
