Too lugubrious and downbeat to come off as believable, this routine tragedy by director Yvan Govar contains several misunderstandings leading to multiple deaths. Gus (Karl Boehm) has just gone through a harrowing trial for the murder of his stepfather, and he was acquitted. Once back home again, he discovers that the townspeople still consider him to be a murderer. His one remaining friend soon loses that distinction when his girlfriend falls for Gus, and leaves him. That is bad enough, but then she is killed in an accident and as might be expected, everyone blames Gus. His situation goes from bad to much worse -- but the count of victims has not ended.
