An invalid concert pianist dies, leaving a will that does not include his personal secretary as a beneficiary. Furious, the left-out man cuts off a hand from the corpse and plots revenge. Unfortunately for him, the hand inherits a life of its own and relentlessly stalks the wild-eyed man as he flees in vain.
