Louise Harrington is a lonely divorcée working at the admissions office at Columbia University when she notices an applicant with a familiar name. She meets with the applicant, F. Scott Feinstadt, and finds that he not only shares the name of her long-dead high school sweetheart, but also looks and paints much like he did. Their meeting ends with Louise taking him to bed, which only deepens her sense that she is living somewhere between the present and the past.
