Sue has arrived in Manhattan fresh from the provinces; she is single, thirty-ish, attractive, sexy and intelligent, but her relationships with others are short-lived and casual. Her life starts to fall apart when she loses her secretarial job and gets behind on her rent. She eases her solitude with sex, consumated with the occasional man in the occasional place, and tries to make friends with other women in bars and laundromats. Things seem to take a turn for the better when she meets Ben, a young reporter who is sincerely interested in her, but when he goes to India on a job, Sue's downward spiral starts all over again. Forced out of her apartment, she moves to a squalid hotel used by prostitutes and other emarginated people. New York has many stories to tell. Sue's doesn't resemble anyone else's.
