Thriller, crime. Daryll Deever, the night janitor at an office block, is a romantic fellow and develops a crush on star TV reporter Tony Sokolow, so much that he regularly records her screen appearances with his video recorder. When Daryll discovers the murder of a wealthy Vietnamese jewel dealer in his office, Tony is sent to cover the story. To keep her interest, Daryll pretends he knows more than he does about the crime. As the hunt for the killer goes on, Daryll's false claim puts him and Tony into danger.
