Synopsis: 

 

Neighbours discover Hester Collyer who has tried and failed to commit suicide. Having recently left her husband for a semi-alcoholic former R.A.F. pilot, the relationship cooled leaving her emotionally stranded and desperate. The aftershocks of her attempted suicide unravel and by the end she is brought to a hard decision to live, partly through the intercession of another resident of the tenement house, Mr Miller.
