A woman roams the streets of Los Angeles in a kind of emotional distress. She is also in a certain delusion as she approaches many men, strangers, whom she calls "David." Finally, an ambulance is called to take her to the hospital, where she is finally admitted to the psychiatric ward. Harvey Willard, the on-duty psychiatrist, puts her on medication to remind her, and in the days that follow, she gets a semblance of a story from her. This phase of her life starts just over a year ago, when she, single RN Louise Howell, is hired by Dean Graham to care for his chronically ill and largely bedridden wife Pauline Graham in her lakehouse outside Washington. DC. Due to her circumstances, Pauline believes that Dean and Louise are having an affair behind their backs. Louise can see that Dean has feelings for her in his loneliness. The "David" is David Sutton, a civil engineer who lives opposite the Grahams on the other side of the lake and with whom Louise had a secret relationship. This relationship should always be casual, but David tries to break it off with her when he sees that she has fallen in love with it in an obsessional state. Louise begins to manipulate the situation in David's life, if only marginally. Louise also begins to feel that if she can not have David, nobody else should. During this time, Louise is finally diagnosed with schizophrenia - something she does not tell anybody in her life - what her story is in a particular context with. Willard, including what's really about the story and what's all part of their delusion.
