This is a standard, somewhat slow-paced drama about a much-needed transformation in a husband and father. Duncan (Van Heflin) is a womanizer who has no faith in the loyalty of any woman and cannot shake that attitude after he falls in love with Liana (Ellie Lambetti) and marries her. One of several disagreements with Liana sends Duncan out of the house with their son to escape on a boating trip. Instead of the respite he imagines, Duncan and his son are left stranded on a small raft after an accident -- giving him plenty of time to think back on his own behavior and why he might believe his wife is unfaithful.
