This adaptation of Lillian Hellman's play involves the corrupt machinations of a wealthy Southern family. Vicious queen bee Regina Giddens and her two greedy brothers scheme mercilessly in their attempt to make a fortune on a new cotton mill. In the process, Regina is more than willing to crush anyone who stands in their way -- including her own husband.
