In Paul Newman’s powerful directorial debut, he casts his wife Joanne Woodward in the role of Rachel Cameron, a 35-year-old spinster schoolteacher, who feels that her life has been meaningless. She lives in a small New England town with her simpering widowed mother in an apartment over the funeral parlor that once belonged to her father. Haunted by memories of her childhood and her father, Rachel spends each frustrating day taking care of her mother and working with the schoolchildren.
