This is the first film directed by Robson after his 1967 box-office hit Valley of the Dolls.
Cathy Palmer (White), a young British woman, comes to San Francisco to live. There she meets Kenneth Daly (Hylands), a relationship develops and she becomes pregnant, but when Cathy sees another side of Kenneth's personality, she elects to break off their engagement and abort the pregnancy.
Sometime later, Cathy meets and marries Jack Byrnes (Burke), who has political ambitions. Kenneth, however, continues to be disturbed by the way Cathy ended their romance, and soon comes back into her life. After Cathy gives birth to Jack's baby, Kenneth demands that she kill the child as retribution for the one she aborted earlier.
