Roy Turner (Danton), a mental patient with a violent past, is prematurely released from the ward due to overcrowding. The doctors tell him to avoid stressful situations. Realizing that he can't handle the pressures of big-city life he moves into a beachside motel in a small coastal town. There he falls in love with Susan Mayes (Miller), the daughter of the motel's owner. But when her father discovers that he is a mental patient he threatens Turner to have him recommitted unless he leaves his daughter alone. Turner snaps momentarily, killing him, and he and Susan flee down the beach. He tries to kill her by pushing her into the water, but comes to his senses and rescues her. He ends up turning himself in.
