A disturbed young woman - a former for child of the 60's, named Noah lives alone in New York, where she's retreated into her past, yearning for lost innocence., searching for a "safe place." As a child, she met a magician in Central Park who gave her magical objects. She's romantically involved with 2 different men; Fred's practical but dull, and Mitch is dynamic sexy - her ideal fantasy partner, but neither man's able to totally fulfill her needs.
