Synopsis:
A man sees a woman on the beach one night who he suspects will attempt suicide. He spots her in the ocean and plunges in to save her. She struggles but he manages to get her ashore. She starts to tell him her story: years earlier in Central Park. She saw a small flying saucer, small enough to put her arms around it. It floated down next to her and touched itself to her forehead for a second and they then both fell to the ground.
