A boy who struggles with being caught between two cultures grows up to become a doctor to keep his beloved mother happy. With an alcoholic father and a brother whose achievements he cannot live up to, he struggles to find his own identity until he decides to become an art dealer. He finds great success only to become voluntarily entangled in the shady world of art forgery and blackmail.
When his lover and business associate dies under suspicious circumstances, she reaches from the grave to make him pay penance for the rejection of her love. But his guilt over having the blood of a murderer flowing in his veins means that he finds himself incarcerated for a crime he did not commit.
