Synopsis

Hester Collyer has tried and failed to commit suicide. Some time before, she left her husband, a respectable High Court Judge, for a semi-alcoholic former R.A.F. pilot. The relationship was physical and passionate but his ardor has cooled, leaving her emotionally stranded and desperate. By the end she is brought to a hard decision to live, partly through the intercession of another resident of the tenement house, Mr. Miller, an ex-doctor, struck off for what seems to have been a homosexual offense. These two outcasts, socially ostracized for their 'excessive' loves, find a curious and moving kinship.
