Arch Hammer, a man with an uncanny ability to change his face to look like others, checks into a hotel room with a plan to impersonate several recently deceased men in an attempt to swindle their acquaintances out of money, love, or both. When he tries to escape the lair of a mob boss whose money he’s just taken, he must change his face to resemble that of a man whose picture he saw just moments ago…only to have that man’s past catch up with him.
