Professional photographer L.B. "Jeff" Jeffries breaks his leg while getting an action shot at an auto race. Confined to his New York apartment, he spends his time looking out of the rear window observing the neighbors. He begins to suspect that a man across the courtyard may have murdered his wife. Jeff enlists the help of his high society fashion-consultant girlfriend Lisa Freemont and his visiting nurse Stella to investigate.
Jeff shares his theory with his wealthy, self-absorbed girlfriend Lisa (Grace Kelly) and his nurse/housekeeper, Stella (Thelma Ritter), who are both initially skeptical about what Jeff thinks he has seen but are eventually on board with Jeff and want to help him nab this guy.
