Suzanna Leigh has a mental breakdown from overwork and is sent to rest on a remote British island. The innkeeper (Guy Doleman) is a beekeeper. Leigh stumbles across the chic cottage of Frank Finlay, who also keeps bees.

A swarm of killer bees soon attack Doleman’s wife, and suspense builds in a manner that viewer does not know which of the beekeepers is responsible for these bee-havings. Throughout, characters show little emotional involvement, except for Leigh, who has command of all she does.
