A young lady is at odds with her rich father. She and her boyfriend fall in with a couple of opportunist beatniks who devise a plan to stage a kidnapping (of her) with the hope of extorting money from her father. Not finding satisfaction in the police investigation of her disappearance, the father hires a private investigator who attempts to piece together the truth with very few leads.

A "retelling" of the Patty Hearst abduction. The person's last name is Mellon (see the Mellon-Scaifes, Pittsburgh news tycoons), and the Symbionese Liberation army has a new name, but the circumstances are similar.

Poor little rich girl Maryann Mellon gets involved with the Blood of the People's Advanced Revolutionary Army and changes her name to "Chris." (The other members have names like "Zipper" and "Hammer.")
