Retreating to a placid Maine lake resort in order to finish her latest novel without distractions, Jessica (Angela Lansbury) decides to go birdwatching one fine morning. During this pursuit, Jessica witnesses what seems to be a struggle between a man and a woman in a boat on the lake, ending with the woman falling overboard. The man is accused of murder, but Jessica believes that the victim was not pushed in the water but instead jumped on her own accord--and the mystery deepens when it turns out that the drowned woman was a champion swimmer!
