When his wife leaves him, a young French actor, François Combe, moves to New York to work for a television company. One night at a bar he meets an attractive young woman named Kay Larsi. She's as lost and unhappy as he is, let alone alone, since her friend and roommate Jessie moved out of the apartment. A romance develops between the two and their meeting will have developments.
