When she strikes up a casual friendship with fellow commuter Dr Alec Harvey (Richard Burton), their relationship soon deepens into unspoken love. Unable to leave her family, Anna is gradually worn down by the deceit of their unconsumated affair, until she realises that the people she is betraying are the people she loves the most.
