When the mutilated corpse of a young woman is found on an Australian beach, retired detective Thompson (Ray Milland) involves himself in the investigation. But before they can find the killer, the police must first identify the victim. Who was this once-beautiful girl found clad only in yellow pajamas? Why would the authorities put her nude body on public display? And even if Thompson can crack the baffling case, will he survive to see her killer brought to justice? Mel Ferrer, Howard Ross, and Dalila Di Lazzaro costar in this film written and directed by Flavio Mogherini with score by Riz Ortolani.
