Seeking emotional and financial security, young Elisa Minden (Antoinette Bower) marries the wealthy, and considerably older, Sir Humphrey J. Orford (Michael Rennie). Before long, however, Elisa has reason to regret her decision -- especially when evidence surfaces indicating that Sir Humphrey, a widower, used torture to keep his first wife from cheating on him. But this is nothing compared to the double-barrelled shock Elisa receives upon meeting an ominously silent woman named Flora (Shirley O'Hara).
