When Frank is about 16, his parents split up after his father gets into deep financial trouble. Young Frank sets out on his own, eventually cashing forged checks for millions of dollars. Before reaching his 19th birthday, he successfully passes himself off as an airline pilot, a physician, and an attorney. But young Frank must keep on the move to avoid being apprehended by FBI agent Carl Hanratty. Along the way, Frank gets involved with two attractive young women and meets a New Orleans prosecutor.
