After Batman saves the life of an innocent condemned man on death row, the pridon warden asks him to stick around as "acting Warden" until a new one is appointed. But he is puzzled as to why a prisoner that is scheduled to be released the next day attempts to break out the evening before. Batman figures that it may be connected to $250,000 missing since a robbery years before since the con occupies the same cell as the executed crtiminal responsible for the robbery.
