The Cutlers (Max Showalter and Jean Powers) arrive at their Niagara Falls cabin only to find George and Rose Loomis (Cotten and Monroe) overstaying their welcome and occupying their retreat. Sensing something amiss, Mrs. Cutler later witnesses Rose secretly kissing another, younger man. When Rose and her beau concoct a plan to murder George and run off together, the Cutlers are caught in the middle, but the unpredictable George turns the tables on everyone.
