Immobilized by a broken leg, photographer L.B. Jeffries (James Stewart) finds himself with nothing to do but look out the window of his New York City apartment.
With a view of his neighbors’ apartments as well as the apartment courtyard, Jeffries watches the daily goings on of an assortment of tenants. When his neighbor’s wife goes missing, Jeffries suspects foul play. With the help of his socialite girlfriend (Grace Kelly) and no-nonsense home-care nurse Stella (Thelma Ritter), Jeffries sets out to get to the bottom of the mystery.
