A young architect (Willum) claims to owe his life to a GI (Rick) he never met who saved his life when wounded during the Vietnam War. Afterwards, he wrote to the soldier telling him that, in gratitude, he would do anything for him as long as he lives. Willum's delight of meeting Rick when he turns up unexpectedly at his door eventually leads to him moving in and bringing Rick's ordered life down around his ears.

Auditioners will read exerpts from the script.
