After hubby Ted goes to work, Ellen putters around the apartment in her nightgown cleaning up. When she takes the trash out, the janitor forces her into his apartment and rapes her. When he tries to rape her again, she dispatches him and then hits the road, a fugitive from injustice. She goes to the Big City and encounters a string of situations where she gets used and abused. When she finally finds a nice woman to rent from, the woman's son turns out to be a detective, which threatens her newly found identity and peace of mind. Written by

There were several differed posters for this film, all of which featured various women in states of undress (bra and panties, negligee, etc.). None of the women in the posters appeared in the film. See more »
When Meg is walking down the staircase to the janitor's apartment, she is wearing open-toed mules. In the scene in the apartment itself, however, she is wearing regular pumps. (Fact: the feet in the shot on the stairwell are actually those of Doris Wishman; they can also be seen in the Port Authority crowd scene). See more »
My first Doris Wishman film, which a friend told me was supposedly one of her best (if so, then I'd hate to see her worst)! This thing concerns a young woman who first gets attacked by her janitor and so flees away into the big city where she incomprehensibly manages to become involved with all sorts of sick and abusive strangers along her path, yet naively and inexplicably keeps moving in with them! Kind of perversely funny watching her shack up with each guy only to soon be carrying her same suitcase away with her in the middle of the night again and again.
