This emotionally charged and heart-wrenchingly poignant tale follows the trials and triumphs in the life of John "Scottie" Ferguson, a retired San Francisco police detective who suffers from acrophobia.
A wealthy shipbuilder who is an acquaintance from college days approaches Scottie and asks him to follow his beautiful wife, Madeline. He fears she is going insane, maybe even contemplating suicide, because she believes she is possessed by a dead ancestor. Scottie is skeptical, but agrees after he sees the beautiful Madeline. What will Scottie's investigations of Madeline's activities reveal? How will the relationship between Madeline and Scottie unfold?
