When people say they are madly in love, they rarely mean being in love is driving them mad. Zorg keeps up a collection of bungalows and enjoys writing in his spare time. He meets a wild young woman named Betty and just as things get hot and heavy, the passionate pair is forced to leave after a dispute with his boss. Betty eventually finds work and convinces Zorg to submit some of his writing to a publishing company, but when the sample is rejected she loses her mind. Zorg notices that Betty is starting to come unhinged and their rocky relationship may leave him black and blue.
