A broke medical student in desperate need of tuition money sells everything he owns to a dishonest professor.

Film historians Alain Silver and Elizabeth Ward give the film a positive review. "This low budget film is hardly pure Dostoevsky, but it has a visual style superior to and more cohesive than the typical Monogram product."
