While searching for a rare plant in Tibet, wealthy botanist Wilfred Glendon is bitten by a werewolf. After the incident he returns home to find his wife, more and more estranged from her neglectful husband, turning in her loneliness to her childhood sweetheart, Paul Ames. Glendon also meets the mysterious Dr. Yogami, who wishes to see the rare plant that Glendon has found, the ''Marifasa lupina'', as its blossoms form the only cure against werewolf transformation albeit a temporary one.
.
Soon afterward, the remaining ''Marifasa'' is stolen and Glendon starts transforming on the nights of full moon. Each night people die and soon UsefulNotes/ScotlandYard is after him.
