Once she kept a lover on the side. But that's nothing compared to what she's keeping in the freezer.
Jane is swept up in a torrid affair when she leaves her two children home alone as she dashes out to rendezvous with her lover Fred on the other side of town. When Jane's bitterly jealous daughter Lucy uncovers evidence of her mother's infidelity, she decides to punish the misdeed by drowning her brother in a bathtub. Upon receiving news of the incident, Jane races home and gets into an automobile accident that proves the end of her lover, and leads to an extended stint in a local asylum for the devastated mother.
