Set in barely postcolonial Ceylon, the film stars Elizabeth Taylor as Ruth Wiley, a recent bride who has just arrived from England with her husband, John (Finch), an immensely wealthy tea planter. Before long, Ruth realizes that John is far more interested in playing indoor polo with his cronies than he is in her, and she becomes involved with plantation overseer Dick Carver (Andrews). Wiley's indifference to his wife is matched by his contempt for nature, which will soon prove disastrous.
