During a Friday afternoon tryst in a Phoenix, Arizona, hotel, real-estate secretary Marion Crane and her boyfriend, Sam Loomis, discuss how they cannot afford to get married because of Sam’s debts. After lunch, Marion returns to work where a client leaves a $40,000 cash payment on a property, an enormous sum for the time (equivalent to $349,900 in 2020). Marion’s boss asks her to deposit the money in the bank and allows her to leave early after she complains of a headache. Instead, she decides to steal the money and drive to Sam’s home in Fairvale, California, returning home first to pack. She is spotted by her employer at an intersection on the way out of town, who walks right past the hood of her car, but continues on his way. En route to Fairvale, Marion pulls onto the shoulder and sleeps until morning. She is awakened in broad daylight by a California Highway Patrol officer. Suspicious of her nervous behavior, the officer follows her. She stops at a Bakersfield automobile dealership and trades in her car for one with California plates. The officer eyes her suspiciously as she drives away.

During a downpour, Marion stops for the night at the unoccupied Bates Motel, which lost its trade when the main highway it had been on was moved. The proprietor, Norman Bates, invites her for dinner after check-in. She accepts his invitation but overhears an argument between Norman and his mother Norma about bringing a woman into their home, a Gothic mansion which sits perched above the motel. Instead, they eat in the motel parlor, where he tells her about his life with his mother, who is mentally ill and forbids him to have a life apart from her. Moved by elements of Norman’s story that resonate with her own plight, Marion decides to drive back to Phoenix in the morning to return the stolen money.
