In 1931, the charred corpse of womanizing but married Bobby Lewis was found in the bed of his latest lover Eula May Adams.

Her daughter Roberta is raised in an unloving home and never given help or some solace to cope with the two deaths.
Eight years later, Roberta meets womanizing Charles Harris and like a chip off the old block, obsesses about him. They make love in an old barn and when she becomes pregnant, he has no choice but to marry her. Charles loathes his life change as he wants his freedom back while his wife thinks she has everything with him as her spouse and now two children.
