A Woman’s Past

Το παρελθόν μιας γυναίκας

A nightclub singer is forced to shoot her ex-boyfriend, who has escaped from prison and is blackmailing her for money. Believing him to be dead, the girl decides to leave and start her life anew. She marries a wealthy gentleman, who is unaware of her past, and together they have a baby girl. One day, however, an old friend – who, by a devilish coincidence, is also her husband’s brother – will return, threatening to reveal everything about her past.
