A square from Nebraska? An off-beatnik from Greenwich Village? It just didn't figue ... that they would ... that they could ... that they did!

Jerry Ryan wanders aimlessly around New York after giving up his Nebrascan law practice. His wife asks for a divorce. He meets Gittel, a struggling dancer from Greenwich Village and they try to sort out their lives. An extended conversation piece with a static camera, but reflects the moral climate of the time.
