Tagline: They changed his looks, his life and his future... but they couldn't change his past.

Plot: Born with a horribly disfigured face, and unable to become part of "normal"society, John Sedley turns to a life of crime. But his two fellow gang members trick him and Johnny is sent to prison. There he meets a plastic surgeon who takes sympathy on him and surgically transforms him into a new man. Now unrecognizable to those who once new him, the once ugly duckling plots a vicious revenge.
