An English couple emigrate to the small Canadian town of Jamestown. The father, Peter Carter (Patrick Allen), takes up the post of headmaster at a local school, but then his nine-year-old daughter Jean is encouraged to dance naked by elderly local bigwig Clarence Olderberry Sr. (Felix Aylmer), the Carter’s instigate a sexual abuse case. In court the distraught parents run into a wall of antipathy from the townspeople who side with the man who has helped to build their prosperous town. However, despite having spent time in a sanatorium and previous abuse incidents on record, the case is lost and Olderberry is set free. Later, when Jean and Lucille are playing in the woods, Clarence Olderberry appears and begins to pursue the children.
