Dana is a 38-year-old New York artist in a slough of depression which intensifies when her latest exhibition bombs. After her attempted suicide, we find her in a psychiatric hospital. Threatened with being thrown back into the world when the insurance money runs out, she fakes multiple personality disorder. On impulse she assumes the unlikely identity of a legendary Afro-American baseball star, Darryl Strawberry, with an outcome that bears surprising fruit.
