While fishing in Mexico, down-on-his-luck wanderer Hayden falls for the shapely Baxter after spying her on a beach. When she tries to convince Hayden to aid her in killing her overbearing husband, Hoyt, Hayden refuses but remains attracted. After discovering his wife's infidelity, Hoyt

pretends to blow himself up, hoping the police will think it the work of Baxter and her lover. When shifty private eye White clears Baxter with the officials, he quickly turns around and tries to blackmail Baxter, threatening to expose her affair with Hayden. Baxter neatly kills White but is

surprised to learn that Hoyt has reappeared. At the film's climax Baxter, Hoyt, and Hayden meet on the beach where the lovers had first met. Baxter quickly shoots her husband, but Hoyt musters up enough energy to fire back at his treacherous wife. With Hoyt dead, Baxter perishes in Hayden's arms.

Vaguely reminiscent of Orson Welles' THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI, this tale of deception and murder doesn't contain the edgy suspense that makes such a thriller interesting. Baxter and Hayden do their best with their lightweight roles but cannot help the substandard direction and plotting.
