Synopsis by Mark Deming
Richard Foreman, an important figure in New York avant-garde theater, wrote the screenplay for this imaginative absurdist comedy. Agatha (Cynthia Hopkins) finds herself unable to separate dream life from her waking reality when her circumstances begin traveling in a number of unexpected directions. Frequently finding herself on a field near a golf course playing the accordion (sometimes while naked), Agatha is suddenly stricken with a strange disease that robs her of the use of her legs. An eccentric scientist, Dr. Wanton (Ryan Holsopple), comes to her aid and begins subjecting her to a variety of strange treatments with obvious sexual and psychological undertones. Meanwhile, Agatha is transported to nightspots on other planets, deals with a gang of aggressive hipsters, and encounters an over-enthusiastic golfer.
