Teri Hansen's ordeal with the law begin when police discover her hiding in a desert gully near the car where her husband's charred, bullet-ridden corpse smolders accusingly. Frightened to the point of incoherency, the police do not find out what happened right away. The bullets point to murder, and since her fingerprints are on the gun... Teri swears she didn't kill him, and attorney Ross Bishop takes the case. The tragic details of her story unfold by flashback and begin with her unhappy marriage to Allen, a paranoid and jealous man. Allen proves a lousy lover and Teri seeks solace in the arms of others, something that only makes matters worse. A pregnancy and her decision to abort the baby escalate matters into the violence that led her to jail.
