In New York City, a magazine writer named Theresa ends up being set up on a blind date by a friend. The man with whom she is having the date, Tony, is very socially awkward, and he tries far too hard to please her. Since she is not really interested in continuing their relationship, she leaves midway through their second date. However, he continues to follow her and send her messages. She gets the police involved when she is worried about him following her home, and on the advice of Officer Beck, who is assigned to the case, she ultimately changes her identity completely and moves to Denver to escape Tony.
