Jeffery, a television writer, is delighted to be seated next to Ellen, an attractive flutist, on a flight from Los Angeles to New York, but she rebuffs his attempts to get acquainted. Upon arrival, Helen discovers it is impossible to get a hotel room and is finally cajoled into accompanying Jeffery to a borrowed apartment. An intense four day affair ensues, but the idyll is cut short when Ellen learns her leukemia is no longer in remission and she must return to Houston for treatments. Against her wishes, Jeffery accompanies her. In the days that follow they learn the meaning of love and courage.
