In this acclaimed drama, Belinda McDonald (Jane Wyman), a young deaf-mute woman living off the coast of Canada on Cape Breton Island, becomes close to the new local doctor, Robert Richardson (Lew Ayres). When Belinda is raped by a customer at her family's farm and becomes pregnant, many suspect Dr. Richardson. Seeking to start over in a new location with Belinda, he leaves town to find a new home, but more conflicts ensue, further jeopardizing their happiness.
Now in her 80s, Susie Parkington (Greer Garson) recalls her marriage six decades earlier, which was followed by the revelation that her husband, Augustus (Walter Pidgeon), was still romantically entangled with French Baroness Aspasia Conti (Agnes Moorehead). She also looks back on the untimely passing of her mother and one of her children, two of the defining events of her life. And with her adult son needing a cash infusion to save his skin, she ponders the fate of her fortune.
