Borderline: Set in a Swiss mountain resort town, tells the story of Adah, a black woman who has an affair with Thorne, a white man, then attempts to reconcile with her husband Pete, and eventually leaves town. Thorne's wife Astrid goes mad and cuts Thorne's face and arm with a knife, then mysteriously dies. After Thorne is tried and acquitted, the mayor sends Pete a letter asking him to leave town for the good of all concerned.
