Jane Langley raised her younger sister, Nancy, like a mother. Now both work with Bill Prentice, an advertising executive, Jane as a clothing designer and Nancy as a model. Jane is in love with him, but Bill prefers her sister.
Nancy becomes bored after their marriage. Bill wants a baby, so Nancy agrees, even though she and her sister both have been cautioned by family doctor Fredericks that they are predisposed to have great difficulty with childbirth. Nancy has a daughter, Deborah, but grows increasingly angry and sullen over time, treating Bill coldly.
One night after Jane and Bill begin to realize they have feelings for one another, Nancy falsely assumes they have had an affair behind her back. After an angry scene, a distraught Jane drives off recklessly and kills the child.
Time passes and Nancy obtains a divorce. Jane sees Bill and they do begin a romance, but once she is pregnant, she runs off to have the baby, putting her own life in serious jeopardy. Before she dies, Jane presents the baby to Nancy and Bill, hoping they can start over as a couple.
