Young socialite Catherine Holly has been left traumatised and confined to a mental hospital after witnessing the horrific murder of her cousin Sebastian during a trip to Europe. Her aunt, Violet Venable, invites a psychiatrist to question the girl about her account of the events leading up to Sebastian’s death, but the picture Catherine paints is so graphic and fantastical that Violet refuses to believe it.
