Teenagers Flora and Bill Darby grow tired of their father's restrictions, seeking rebellion in very different ways. While Bill eventually gets himself disowned by choosing to marry a woman his father does not approve of, Flora takes a very different path. Tired of her tutor's cruel behavior, Flora smothers her. No one ever suspects her crime, but that instance of evil begins Flora's descent into destruction.
