After recieving a "Dear Jane" letter from her fiance in Korea, a young woman accepts a blind date and, at the end of the evening, finds herself in the man's apartment, nearly blind drunk, fending off her suitor's advances with a poker before passing out for the evening. The next day it's discovered that the man is dead. Though the young woman believes she's the killer, it turns out another woman had entered the apartment later that night.
