Synopsis

Successful novelist Richard Harland, a straight arrow about to be irreparably bent, meets Ellen on a train. She takes him home to her family. They marry, despite hints that something is not right with Ellen. In wedlock, Richard bridles under Ellen's smothering devotion. When his attention strays to his younger brother Danny, or Ellen's sister Ruth, there is hell to pay.
