Fired from her teaching job, Blanche DuBois (Ann-Margret) takes refuge at the New Orleans home of her sister Stella (Beverly D'Angelo) and her husband, Stanley Kowalski (Treat Williams). Though shunned by working-class Stanley for her extravagant antebellum ways, Blanche begins asserting her dominance in the household. Stanley and Blanche are destined for confrontation when Stanley discovers that Blanche is hiding the truth about why she left her job.
