Cynthia and Buck are a young couple with little but love. Soon Cynthia drops the cough syrup and beer drinking Buck: her dreams of being a princess did not involve an unemployed boyfriend who steals steaks and fruit-pies under his shirt. Setting out on her own, a devastated Buck left behind, Cynthia gets a job caring for rich but terminally ill Eleanor. As God would have it, Buck comes back into the picture. Cynthia persuades him to charm the self-conscious Eleanor, to gain favors in her will.

One of the worst films at Sundance, Richman's update of Henry James' novel Wings of the Dove, is marred by obvious text, shallow motivations, and pat ending; beware the romantic meller is aka Under Heaven (where it should have stayed).
