A young naive woman falls for a handsome young man who her emotionally abusive father suspects is a fortune hunter

In this film, Catherine Sloper is the plain-Jane daughter of a wealthy widower. Catherine is not only unattractive but lacks most of the social graces. When Catherine falls in love with handsome young Morris Townsend, she believes her love is reciprocated, why else would Morris be so affectionate towards her? Adapted from the 1947 play The Heiress.
