Spirited American girl Charley Harrow breaks her back in a riding accident and has been confined permanently to bed, when a charismatic new nurse called Bessie turns up on the doorstep. Seemingly steadfast, kind and efficient, Bessie takes charge of Charley and wins her over where all other nurses had failed. The family warm to her, but in reality Bessie is an apostle of evil and promises the despondent Charley her mobility in return for her soul. Only one person suspects Bessie: Charley's nervous sister Ruth, who decides to investigate the new nurse's background more deeply, with deadly consequences.
