A love affair between Keller’s son Chris, and Ann Deever – the daughter of the business partner, the bitterness of Deever’s son, who returns from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free, and the reaction of a son to his father’s guilt escalate towards a climax of electrifying intensity.
