|Plot Summary of Los Angeles|
Angel Veronchek, the albino son of a Hollywood mogul, is a young man with psychological problems. He is being treated with drugs. He meets his new next door neighbor, a black woman named Angela. She dances at a topless club under the name Cassandra. They become friendly, and then romantically involved.
One night she phones him, says his name and then hangs up. When he tries to get her back, he cannot reach her. Her apartment is empty. Convinced she is in trouble, Angel calls the police, but they can do nothing. He begins to search for her. But all his efforts are in vain.
He goes to his father's attorney for help, but they find him the wrong girl. The more Angel searches the stranger things get. The girl's real name may not have been Angela at all and he really has no evidence that anything has happened to her. He takes so many drugs that the whole thing may well be some kind of hallucination. In the end Angel must find a way to distinguish what is real and what is imagination.
