Synopsis / Plot
Olivia (Crawford), a New York nightclub dancer, tires of the fast life and marries Henry Linden (Douglas), a farmer. When Olivia moves to her new husband's farm, in Wisconsin, she encounters trouble from his domineering sister-in-law Hannah (Bainter) and his brother David, (Young), who do not approve of her. Olivia finds an ally in David's wife, Judy (Sullavan), who is in a loveless marriage. Olivia also comes to realize that she and Judy are in the same situation. Olivia's living situation is further complicated when David defends her from the unwanted advances of a farm hand and he begins to fall in love with her. Henry is unaware of this; but, when Hannah finds out what is going on, sets fire to the home in a drunken rage. Olivia saves a badly burned Judy, and David realizes he has loved Judy after all. Olivia then decides to leave the farm; and, as she drives away, Henry joins her and they leave together.
