Product Description:

In Sidney Lumet's jarring thriller, THE MORNING AFTER, Jane Fonda plays an alcoholic who wakes up one morning after a hard night of drinking and finds a man lying next to her who has been stabbed to death. Fearful that she is the one who committed the murder, she flees. Later, she finds a friend in an ex-cop (Jeff Bridges) who helps her solve the mystery.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Who's the guy lying next to her' How did they meet' All Alex knows is that he's as dead as a toe-tagged John Doe. "He had a heart attack'" Alex's ex asks over the phone. "From a knife in the chest," she retorts.
Two-time Academy Award winner Jane Fonda earned her seventh OscarO nomination* as Alex, an alcoholic has-been actress cast in the real-life role of Suspect #1. Panicked at facing the police, Alex runs for it'right into the battered convertible of a washed-up former cop (Jeff Bridges). Their uneasy alliance draws them nearer each other and closer to the startling truth behind the murder. Director Sidney Lumet (The Verdict) draws strong performances from his leads and an ensemble that includes Raul Julia and Kathy Bates. The murder happened the night before. But the real mystery begins The Morning After.
