Dr. David Newcome (Paul Muni) takes in Leni (Jane Bryan), a troubled young woman, as a governess for his son. Gossip spreads, and the doctor's wife, Jessica (Flora Robson), begins to suspect the governess of malicious intent, ultimately leading her to move out until Leni vacates. Soon after, David accidentally breaks a bottle of pills and returns them to a different bottle. When Jessica mistakenly takes the pills, David and Leni find themselves in a dire situation.
