Plot Summary
Resentful after an ugly divorce from her unfaithful husband, Judith McGuire (Barbara Baxley) moves to Los Angeles. Adrift and detached, she spends her days and nights wandering through her new city, cynically remarking on the hypocrisy, vanity and brutality of the modern world and humanity's alienation from themselves and each other. Even as she attempts to re-enter the dating world with a new suitor (Herschel Bernardi), Judith remains closed off until an unexpected shock rocks her emotions.
