Police detective Lee Tucker is investigating the murder of a woman. He has little evidence until factory worker Franklin Wills approaches him, identifying himself as a clairvoyant. Wills goes into trances during which he says that he can see the murder taking place. The whole time, Tucker wonders if Wills is authentically clairvoyant, or if he has an ulterior motive.
