The powerful story of salesgirl Mary Hilton, convicted of murder and sentenced to hang. Held in a condemned cell, she remembers the events that led to her crime. Falling in love with impoverished musician Jim, she left her neglectful husband for him, only to find his affection deflected by his tragic affair with socialite Lucy Carpenter. Heartbroken, Mary snaps – transforming her love for him into a murderous hatred for her rival. Imprisoned and desperately afraid; each day the end grows closer and she attempts to settle matters with her family as she awaits her final sentencing – or a possible reprieve.
Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival.
