Ann Walton (Mala Powers) enjoys her predictable suburban life and her bookkeeping job and has recently become engaged to her boyfriend Jim (Robert Clarke). Then one night she is sexually assaulted on her way home from work.

Following the shocking experience, she endures questioning from the police and struggles to return to work. Unable to process what has occurred, she runs away to Los Angeles. There she meets a preacher (Tod Andrews) who tries to support her in confronting what has happened.

Outrage was one of the first mainstream Hollywood films to address rape and its consequences head on. It emphasised the experience of the woman who survived it, a perspective that even today some films continue to ignore.

‘Ida Lupino […] has a great liking for the frank, blunt look at subjects which Hollywood has hitherto ignored’ – The Washington Star
