Synopsis
When children's book editor Pamela and hospital intern Remy meet in New York, they fall for each other and move in together. Pamela is initially shocked to find Remy using speed, but he convinces her that it is not addictive. Remy's increasing drug use leads to the loss of his job and a debt to his dealer, and Pamela's brother urges her to leave him, but instead she quits her job to help him and becomes addicted herself. Their lives continue to deteriorate and eventually they learn that Remy's dealer has tricked him into injecting heroin. When Pamela tries to get Remy to go to a clinic for help he refuses and she seeks treatment alone.
