Carolyn Parsky seems to lead a full life. She's delightful and outgoing. We meet her returning from a vacation. Anxious to share her experiences with Anita, her neighbor, Carolyn can't wait for her arrival. But that evening Anita announces she's become engaged. Carolyn seems overjoyed but is actually an emotional cripple - especially dependent on Anita. About to have the main crutch in her barren life removed, Carolyn becomes desperate and treacherous. Cornering Anita's fiance, she so maligns Anita's character that she drives him off, allowing Anita to believe she's been jilted. But the finance returns and we're witness to a dramatic confrontation. Carolyn's ultimate defeat - and descent into the twilight world she's always been near makes thrilling drama.
