Trisha was excited about her class trip to New York. Maybe she would stop having dreams about the "Charlie Chaplin" boy. Matt, Trisha's boyfriend, would be furious if he knew she was dreaming about someone else. But when Trisha stepped off the bus in "The Big Apple", there he was - her "dream boy".

But was freedom so important when he had nothing else - no family, no future, nothing definite in his life? When Vic asked Trisha to stay with him in New York, that was the turning point; her dream became reality... or did it?
