Set during the Depression, this story concerns an older man and his attractive young wife, who take on drifter Frank Chambers (John Garfield) as an employee at their roadside cafe. Cora, the unhappy wife, is searching for a way out of her drab day-to-day existence. Soon she and Frank develop lustful feelings for each other, and their passions grow until they plan a new life together -- a new life that begins with her husband's murder.
