Synopsis:

The program notes read: "A working girl dreams of a boy from next door. Her dream-self, alluring and beautiful, has no difficulties attracting his attention. The girl wakes . . . it is a hot night so she goes to the roof of her house where among many ‘night birds’ she finds her dream beau as well."
