Stifled New Jersey housewife Robert Glass mitigates her boredom by reading the New York personal ads of an exotic bohemian named Susan. Roberta actually goes into the city to watch an ad-inspired meeting of Susan and her lover Jimmy, but this innocently voyeuristic adventure backfires when she hits her head and loses her memory. Then, due to a case of mistaken identity, Roberta essentially becomes Susan and is soon being chased through the East Village by several unsavory characters.
