Victorian ne2er-do-well Stephen Byrne assaults and accidentally murders his wife2s virginal housekeeper. With the reluctant assistance of loyal brother John, Stephen remorselessly consigns the girl2s corpse to the river. But as John2s affection for Stephen2s wife Marjorie, police suspicion about the girl2s disappearance, and the depths of Stephen2s depravity all escalate, the river itself provokes a horrifying reunion between victim and murderer
