Long before home video there flourished an alternative cinema culture on college campuses and around art theaters, where foreign film fare was often accompanied by a short subject. As reliable 16mm film equipment became available to non-professionals, artists independent of film centers began experimenting with cinema. Serious film societies sprang up in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, holding semi-private screenings of non-commercial artistic films. For years, these pictures have been exhibited only in infrequent museum screenings, if at all. This collection is of mainly American pictures, principally one-man artistic endeavors made from little more than an artist's desire to express feelings with a camera

Pete's girl friend, Tonita Storm Cloud, wants to keep Pete out of jail and falls in love with Michael while treating his injury. After her Indian tribe excommunicates her for staying alone with a white man, Michael proposes marriage to her, seeing this as a way to get even with his prejudiced, status-seeking family. He apprises them of his marriage via a telegram to New York, in which he states that they will approve of her because she is from one of America's 'first families.' Michael does not consummate his marriage with Tonita, who is confused by his abstention and lack of affection. On their arrival in New York, he insists she wear her customary Indian garb, and his family is horrified by her appearance.

Although the guests are all ready to humiliate Tonita, she overcomes their prejudice and reveals their pettiness, becomes a big hit at the party. Michael is furious, however, for even in this, he feels, his family has won. Tonita finally becomes aware of the reason that Michael married her, and in defiance, she leaves with Bob Prentice, a notorious home wrecker. At his apartment, Bob is about to seduce Tonita, when Diana, with whom he has been having an affair, rushes in and says she has left her husband for him. She shoots him when he refuses to reconcile with her. Tonita takes the blame for the murder, believing she no longer has a life worth living, and also that this is an excellent way to revenge herself on Michael. While the police investigate Bob's apartment, Michael hides in the closet, having come to find Tonita.

At the police station, Michael is allowed a few moments alone with Tonita, during which she confesses that his sister really killed Bob.

Cliff arrives to hear a gunshot, and finds B.J. dead at his desk, an apparent suicide. He cleans up the evidence and leaves, and is seen by the nightwatchman. The next morning the office staff believe B.J. is in conference until Fran arrives, distraught that he did not come home the previous night, and discovers his body. Police detective Riordan and his assistant arrive to investigate a telegram they received saying that B.J. was ' ... struck down by the hand of God.' Every employee lies about their whereabouts that morning because they were all doing things they feel guilty about, and say that there was a stranger in conference with B.J. The coroner informs Riordan that B.J. has been dead for twelve hours, and all clues point to Cliff as the murder suspect, since the gun has not been found. When the nightwatchman arrives, he confirms that Cliff was there at night. Deborah arrives and is shocked to find B.J. dead, since he had promised her before she left that he would not commit suicide.

He confesses to her that he murdered B.J. and then shoots her. Lane tries to escape in his car, but is shot by police and dies.
