Based on Kitty Genovese's murder, witnessed by thirty neighbors unwilling to aid her. Set in the Plaza Hotel's Palm Court, Virginia comes to stay with her aunt and uncle. A strange man's been trailing her from Chicago. Her relatives are too busy talking to pay much attention to Virginia and a strange man rapes and murders her in front of them.
