NotesB/W. An amnesiac mental patient is being treated by a psychiatrist to uncover her past. She became a famous concert pianist under the tutelage of a disabled musician (we see only that he limps). He loves her (she's very much younger than he is) but is jealous of the other men she sees and deliberately crashes his car with her in it. Her hands are badly burned ending her career. Bizarrely she believes this shows his love for her. Over the top melodrama with a lot of piano playing. Narrated by the woman in flashbacks.
