Brief Synopsis

A pilot (Richard Widmark) wants a life of ease, flying for drug smugglers and looking the other way until his conscience is tweaked by a woman (Veronica Lake) he has misused. He flies into the eye of a hurricane, thereby saving Miami and redeeming himself. The story unfolds in flashbacks as the pilot battles the storm and recalls his failures, including a love affair with the wife (Linda Darnell) of his best friend.
