Frankie is a waitress and Johnny is a short-order cook who works in the same restaurant. And they are in bed together.

It is their first encounter, after having met several weeks ago on the job, and Frankie is hopeful that Johnny will now put on his clothes and depart, so she can return to her usual routine of watching TV and eating ice cream. But Johnny, a compulsive talker (and romantic), has other ideas.

He is convinced that he loves Frankie, a notion that she, at first, considers to be ridiculous. She has had more disappointments than delights in life, and he is the veteran of one broken marriage already.

As moonlight streams into Frankie’s Manhattan apartment, their sometimes touching, sometimes hilarious interplay hints at a relationship beyond a “one-night stand’.

But will it last once the sun comes up?
