Synopsis: When Allie Jones, searching for a new roommate, places the add "SWF seeks same" in the New York Times, she has no idea how apt, and how chilling, that line will come to seem. The new roommate is Hedra, a diffident, somewhat homely woman whose deferential nature Allie imagines will be an appealing quality in a new roommate. Hedra, however, begins to wreak her havoc only after she has been invited inside. Her undisguised admiration for Allie soon begins to seem something more like idolatry, and Allie is distressed when she returns home unexpectedly one day to find Hedra trying on her clothes. But this is, of course, just the beginning. Inexplicable things begin to happen in Allie's life, including a series of obscene phone calls and an odd run-in with a strange man on the street, and it doesn't take long for her to link these occurrences to the bizarre, obsessive Hedra. From coincidental encounters on the street and in restaurants to all manner of intrusive phone calls to Hedra's almost constant presence in the apartment, Allie's life seems boxed in, and New York City seems surprisingly small and menacing.
