Synopsis

While out on bail awaiting the verdict of her trial for the murder of her husband's mistress, a woman returns to her seaside home. On the beach she meets a young man with whom she has a brief, passionate affair. The woman is finally acquitted on the grounds of self-defense, but instead of leaving with the youth, she presumably returns to her husband.
