In Cheryl finding the rundown hotel and her uncle long deceased, seemingly puritanical Aunt Martha reluctantly allows Cheryl to stay for a few days. Cheryl, who tries to be more grown up emotionally than she actually is, is ill-prepared for living at the Kingston, being scared not only of the things that go bump in the night, but those that go bump in the day as well. After meeting a few of the rather odd cast of long term residents of the hotel, Cheryl discovers that one of them anonymously has an interest in her and is thus watching her. In Cheryl secretly going on a search for her admirer, one-by-one she discovers some of the many secrets of the hotel, but not the full meaning behind those secrets. As she befriends fifteen year old Jeff from the neighborhood, he who has some history with former resident Alice Rogers, Cheryl, growing up quicker than Aunt Martha would like, may stumble onto the meaning of those secrets, but perhaps after it's too late.

Having fled New Orleans to avoid arrest, the undeniably alluring Valentine "Snakeskin" Xavier (Val), a trouble-prone guitar-playing drifter, wanders into a small Mississippi town aiming to go straight and lead a quiet, simple life. He gets a job in the dry goods store owned by a sexually-frustrated middle-aged woman named Lady Torrence, whose sadistic elderly husband, Jabe, is dying. With an obscure past and passions of her own, Lady finds herself attracted to Val, pulsating with passion anew, as he presents an arousing antidote to her bitter marriage and small-town hum-drum life, but also vying for Val's attention are the alcoholic, sex-crazed Carol Cutrere and the unhappily-married Vee Talbot. Each bring their share of problems into Val's plans, himself equally tempted by these women though he succumbs to the charms of Lady. But the jealous Jabe is friends with Sheriff Talbot, who's also Vee's wife - things can't possibly end well for Val and Lady. The screenplay by Meade Roberts and Tennessee Williams is based on Williams' own 1957 play "Orpheus Descending".
