A strange fable of love, reminiscent of the classic fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty," which has King buying the sleeping Farrow from a carnival side show. His idealistic view of love is never realized, and eventually he returns her to her sleeping state. Pryor plays King's drug-crazed
friend. White is charismatic as the apparently bisexual mistress of the manor where King takes his newly awakened beauty. Farrow is the younger sister of actress Mia Farrow. This was writer-producer-director Harris' second directorial stint; he directed THE BEDFORD INCIDENT in 1965.
