Plot Summary
Under the grimmest of circumstances, Dr. Guy Montford (Richard Burton) returns to the rural town where he spent his youth. His pal Larry McFie (Tom Drake) is dying of cancer and wants Guy to euthanize him. As he considers the matter, Guy finds his share of diversions: He beds Larry's wife, Margaret (Barbara Rush), and almost falls into a romance with a young nurse (Angie Dickinson). Ultimately, Guy's role in Larry's death feeds a scandal that lands in the lap of the local authorities.
