Based on Oscar Wilde's classic, Sir Robert Chiltern provided an Austrian baron with secret Foreign Office information. As payment he received the money that became the basis of his fortune and of his splendid government career. Years later, he is blackmailed by a mysterious woman who also happens to be an acquaintance of his wife. Seeking advice, Sir Chiltern is told to confess everything to his wife and seek her support, but he refuses to tarnish his name. His refusal to tell his wife has severe consequences as she becomes as much of threat to his position as the blackmailer.
