Faye Dunaway stars as Lady Barbara Skelton, a beautiful English socialite who finds her life extremely dull in spite of being married to a rich man. In order to escape her banal existence, Barbara begins an affair with Jerry Jackson, a miscreant criminal, and together they enter into a life of crime.
Lady Skelton has a vicious murder scene where she smothers someone to death with a pillow while some others are only feet away. Near the end of the movie she has a nasty catfight with Jackson's girlfriend (played by Marina Sirtis) during the public execution by hanging of Jerry. Barbara sadistically whips the rival in front of a baying crowd, leaving her topless and bleeding. But Jackson' Girl picks up a whip of her own and got a chance to revenge her tormentress.
At the end of the movie Lady Skelton was shot while robbing a coach and dies after making her way back home.
