This exciting psychological murder- mystery thriller takes place at a mental institution with an all star cast. Ingrid Bergman is a psychiatrist who falls in love with Dr. Edwards(played by Gregory Peck), unaware of the fact that he is mentally ill. Dr. Edwards happens to be an amnesiac and imposter, and after exhibiting strange behaviour, flees the institution.
