International smuggler Tony Dumont is aboard a plane carrying a shipment of industrial diamonds. It is hijacked by men who flee with the gems. Tony and other passengers, including famed author Pamela Vincent, are flown to Hong Kong, where he doesn't get to say goodbye because Pamela is mobbed by the press.

It turns out Tony was mastermind of the heist. He goes to Macao to see girlfriend Jean Blake and old friend Michael Quisto. They go to the nightclub run by Mama Lin, who raised Tony as an orphan. Pamela is among the club's customers that night, so they renew their acquaintance.

Jean is angered by Tony abandoning her at the club. He took off with henchmen Nicco and Boris to get the diamonds, but they are ambushed. Tony is told that Quisto was the snitch who betrayed them. Ordered by boss Bendesh to kill the informer, Tony hesitates, but Quisto stumbles off a gangplank into a boat's netting and is dragged to his death.

Tony becomes romantically involved with Pamela, so Jean breaks off their relationship. Upset by his friend's death, Tony wants to reform and get out of the business. He travels to San Francisco to find Pamela, only to learn she has written a new book with a character based on him, and now wants nothing more to do with him, having taken up with a tennis player.

Jean and Mama Lin try to help Tony settle matters with his former accomplices, but accidentally lead him into Nicco's trap. The police arrive in time to take Tony and Nicco into custody, leaving the women by themselves, wondering what's to become of Tony.
