This daring drama garnered significant controversy for its frank and complex handling of a taboo subject. After his release from prison on charges of intent to commit child molestation, Jim Fuller (an Oscar-nominated Stuart Whitman) attempts to restart his life with the help of a sympathetic psychiatrist (Rod Steiger). When a young girl is attacked, suspicion immediately falls on Fuller and threatens to derail his budding relationship with a compassionate single mother (Maria Schell).
