Marion Crane works in a real estate office, but dreams of successfully getting married and breaking out of this horror. She secretly meets with Sam Loomis, and waits for his proposal. On one of the working days, the client leaves an impressive amount of money as a deposit to buy a house for his daughter. The director asks the secretary to take the money to the bank first, for safety. She leaves work early and goes to her home. There she collects things, gets into the car and drives off in an unknown direction. Soon, she wants to inform her lover about her location so that she can escape to another state together.
During the trip, the girl stumbles upon an old hotel with guest houses. Its owners are son Norman and an elderly mother who never leaves her room. The young man liked the new guest, which he informs his parent about. As a result, they have a scandal, as a woman is against an affair with a stranger. Marion hears all of their conversation, but does not attach importance to it. The very next day, her corpse, along with the car, sank to the bottom of the swamp. The sister of the disappeared Lila turned to a private detective for help, but during the investigation he also disappeared. Then, having enlisted the support of Sam, she follows the trail of the detective, which lead to the ill-fated hotel.
