The film is set in 1930s West Virginia, along the Ohio River. Ben Harper is sentenced to hang for his part in a robbery. Before he is caught he hides the stolen money, trusting only his children John and Pearl with the money's location. Reverend Harry Powell, a self-appointed preacher with the words "LOVE" and "HATE" tattooed on the knuckles of his right and left hands, shares a prison cell with Harper. He tries in vain to get Harper to tell him the hiding place before his execution. Convinced that Harper told his children the secret, Powell marries Harper's gullible widow, Willa.
