Douglas Howard’s career as a small-town physician is crumbling. Enraptured by Mrs. King, the calculating wife of a wealthy but dying patient, they settle behind closed doors, determined to stave off loneliness and save his career.

What follows is a fatal scandal and an exploration of human expression, desire and manipulation all in the name of love.
