David and Christina Phelps , newly married, return to New York from abroad to meet David's mother, his brother Robert, and Robert's fiancée, Hester. But Mrs Phelps is pathologically afraid of losing her two sons to the women they love, and a night of dramatic confrontation ensues as she fights to maintain her hold on them.
