Summary: The story of a bargirl in a brothel who believes her roommate Linda has stumbled upon true love with a customer who frequents the bar but never sleeps with any of the girls. On Linda’s 30th birthday, the customer owns a car so he drives her away from her hard life in New York for a break, and ultimately puts her a train back to her home town. Their relationship remains platonic, but the bartender believes he is her "Lover Man."
