The title of this Hitchcock thriller spells out the start of this story: Bruno, a wealthy man, and Guy, a tennis player, strike up a conversation on a train. Bruno discloses several wacko theories, including how to commit a perfect murder. For example, he suggests that strangers swap murders to evade detection. Guy laughs off Bruno's ramblings, only to learn he wasn't joking. Bruno kills Guy's estranged wife and wants Guy to kill his father in return. The rest of the film details Guy's attempts to clear his name.
