Since they met the first time in boarding school as kids, it was obvious that orphans Kay and Frank would become a couple. But at sixteen, Frank foolishly attempts to rob a bank with a water gun and ends up in jail for eight years. Meanwhile Kay is sent to foster parents, and she meets successful businessman Mike, who she marries and has two kids with. Now Frank is released from prison and immediately starts wooing Kay again. Although she's happy with Mike, she can't withdraw herself completely. Old memories and her husband's jealousy make her spend more and more time with Frank.
