Near a college campus in the late 1970s Ben, a graduate student, is awakened in the middle of the night by a stranger pounding on his door, a confused and troubled young woman who mistakenly believes that his apartment is the Crisis Center. He makes the mistake of letting her in, and then, against his will, is forced to listen to her increasingly frenzied story about how she can make street lamps go out and kill peacocks with her mind. She thinks somebody's following her, and that that J. Edgar Hoover is putting chemicals in the water and listening in on her conversations. In the course of their funny and increasingly alarming encounter, Ben discovers that he might be the Crisis Center after all. A good showcase for two young actors.
