In a seemingly quiet English home, Peters is step-mother to the three grown children of her husband Knox. Confined to a wheelchair, Peters slowly becomes a dominating force over the entire family. She breaks up a romance for one daughter and nearly drives the son's fiancee to suicide.

Descending further into madness, Peters finally ends it all by wheeling her chair off a cliff to certain death. The obscure title comes from Peters' character's birth sign, which is supposed to be a sign of trouble. Despite some good performances, THE SIGN OF THE RAM suffers from weak scripting

and lackluster direction and never really gets off the ground. Thus, it ends up a routine, below-average soaper. Peters' performance marked her film comeback after a hunting accident a few years earlier caused her to lose the use of her legs.
