A law student invites the local District Attorney to appear at "The Griddle", a question-and-answer session that the law-school fraternity hosts. What the D.A. doesn't know is that the student is the brother of a man the D.A. sent to the gas chamber, and his real goal is to prove his brother's innocence and show up the D.A. for the corrupt, ambitious politician he believes him to be. Law student Darryl Cooper invites an ambitious D.A. to meet his fraternity brothers in 'the griddle,' a political question and answer session. The D.A. accepts, but soon wishes he hadn't, five years ago, he sent Darryl's brother to the gas chamber. Now, Darryl intends to use the griddle to prove his brother's innocence, and to destroy the D.A.'s career.
