A couple, having grown apart after they are unable to conceive a child of their own, decides to adopt. But things take a troubling turn when the adoption agency conducts a background check and discovers the husband leading a double life with another family in L.A. British-born Ida Lupino both acts and directs here, one of the first women in Hollywood to do so (she would go on to write, too). The impressive cast also features Academy Award winners Joan Fontaine and Edmond O'Brien, as well as Edmund Gwenn.
