Roberta is a twenty-something New Jersey housewife with a 40-year-olds wardrobe and a philandering, paternalistic husband. She follows the adventures of a free-spirited stranger, Susan, through messages left by Susan and her boyfriend Jim for each other in the newspaper personal ads. Bored by her own humdrum existence, Roberta trails Susan one day to an assignation with Jim at New Yorks Battery Park, only to become convinced that she is Susan a day later when a blow to the head leads to amnesia. As Susan, Roberta discovers a self-sufficiency she never knew she had, and a new romance with good-natured projectionist Des. Roberta, though, soon discovers that being Susan does have its downside such as the rabid mobster hot on her trail. (Pam Grady)
