Francis Macomber and his wife, Margaret, hire experienced hunter Robert Wilson as their guide on a safari through Kenya. After embarking on the trip, Margaret becomes quickly and openly attracted to Robert. The safari guide refuses her advances, but the situation causes tension between husband and wife. When Margaret shoots Francis, it's up to a jury to decide whether she meant to kill her spouse or the stampeding buffalo behind him.
