In this sprawling love story, Paul Newman plays Alfred Eaton, a former GI and ambitious young executive who climbs to the top of New York's financial world. To begin with he's hindered by a coldly distant father and alcoholic mother, but pushes on regardless. However, domestically, things sour as his marriage to the brattish Joanne Woodward crumbles. At the brink of attaining his career high, he is forced to choose between business success, married to the beautiful, but unfaithful Mary (Woodward) and starting over again with his true love, the much younger Natalie (Ina Balin).
