Directed by Mitchell Leisen
A train accident and a case of mistaken identity gives a pregnant woman abandoned by her lover the opportunity to pass as the daughter-in-law of a wealthy couple. When her past returns to threaten her new life, she discovers the lengths she will go to escape it. Leisen’s suspenseful noir probes the possibility of reinvention and redemption.
