Plot – Jack Dawn, ambiguous member of a powerful Mafia organization, not only has talked too much, but has also written all the important information in a memoir. Sure of the impending showdown, he decides to rescue his son Phil, to whom he entrusts his diary, and leaves him in the care of Gloria Swenson, a friend and neighbor of Mrs. Jerl Dawn. While Gloria, taken by surprise, is hiding the child in her own apartment, the gangsters break into the Dawns' house and massacre Phil's parents, his grandmother and his sister Joan. Gloria, a former showgirl and now a friend of mafia boss Tony Tanzini, is immediately in great difficulty: she is not liked by Phil who, for her part, she considers cumbersome and annoying. She knows that as long as she stays in New York she is in constant danger of being shot by the gang, which she has personal ties with. Nevertheless, keeping faith with her friend Jerl Dawn, she tries to rescue herself and Phil.
