Libby Meredith (Ingrid Bergman) and her law professor husband, Roger (Fritz Weaver), move from New York to a small house in the backwoods of Tennessee. Their neighbor, Will Cade (Anthony Quinn), is very helpful and friendly to them, and to Libby especially. While her intellectual husband is busy writing a book, Libby comes to like the country life and finds herself attracted to Will's rural sensibilities, culminating in a brief middle-aged affair (although Will himself is married too).
Meanwhile, Libby's daughter, Ellen (Katharine Crawford), arrives asking for help in raising her son, Bucky, while she attends Harvard law school. Shortly after, Will's hot-tempered son (Tom Holland), who has found out about their romantic relationship, molests Libby when she is out walking. Though Libby is rescued by Will, he accidentally kills his own son while defending her. After attending the funeral, the disillusioned Merediths decide to return to New York (Roger having drifted away from his wife and grown depressed, failing to finish his book). When Libby bids goodbye to Will at his house, he says he will be waiting for her if she ever returns, but Libby replies that she no longer believes in miracles. The last scene shows Libby picking up Bucky from school, and part of the song "A Walk in the Spring Rain" plays over the end credits.
