As he slips in and out of consciousness with his wife (Susan Hayward) at his side, he looks back at his colourful life., seeing himself as a teenager in the Midwest, as a young writer living in Paris who falls in love with Cynthia (Ava Gardiner), and travelling around Africa. Eventually he comes to terms with his haunting past and realises the depth of his love for his wife.
