Not so bad but...

For the first Lesley Selander film I comment I would have preferred a true crime movie. This one is not but a drama for the two third, mixed for a bit with a women's prison scheme. I expected a true film noir. Not that. But keep in mind that Lesley Selander realized several hundreds of films, especially westerns and adventure. So this feature is worth seeing it for this reason.

It tells the story of a young girl who accidentally kills her step father - her mother's boyfriend - for the reason you can riddle . So, she is sent to prison...The warden's sister suggests to help her in parole...

The following is predictable. Every one could guess the end of this tale. Nothing new.

Once again, this Lesley Selander's flick is not usual for the director.
