A man named Trelkovsky rents an apartment in a creepy old building that is occupied by elderly recluses who watch him with suspicion. When he learns that the former tenant of his apartment was a beautiful woman who committed suicide by jumping out a window, Trelkovsky starts to obsess about her. He becomes more and more paranoid, finally believing that the neighbors are planning on murdering him, and that his girlfriend is in on the plot with them. Eventually, Trelkovsky takes on the identity of the former tenant, including her self-destructive inclination.
