One female thief's voyage of self discovery after her impulsive crimes lead her unexpectedly to a rich and powerful man that is obessed with her. With similar themes of a man making over a woman in his own image and romantic delusions, Marnie is a sort of weaker rehash of Alfred Hitchock's classic Vertigo.
