Charity gets stuck in a broken elevator with shy tax accountant Oscar Lindquist. After helping Oscar overcome his claustrophobia the pair are plunged into new panic when the lights go out. Oscar and Charity go to The 'Rhythm of Life' church, a thin veneer on hippie culture. Oscar wants to Marry Charity who leaves the ballroom. But is there going to be a happy ending?
