While on a drinking binge, Dianne Castillejo (Lois Nettleton) accidentally caused the drowning death of her adopted son, but managed to persuade the child's governess to take the blame. Now a recovering alcoholic, Dianne is finally getting her life back in order when she is visited by Consuela Sandino (Madlyn Rhue), who claims to be the dead child's birth mother -- and who demands a huge amount of money to keep her from revealing Dianne's guilt to the police. Ultimately, Consuela is allowed to move into Dianne's home, where she conducts a systematic campaign to drive Dianne back to the bottle -- and to steal Dianne's rich and influential husband, Victor (Anthony George).
