 Synopsis of "The Nerd"

An aspiring architect, Willum Cubbert often tells his friends the story about a fellow ex-GI (Rick) who saved his life after he was wounded in "nam.” A while back he had written to Rick to say that as long as he is alive, "you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you".  So Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment. But his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless "nerd" with no social skills and zero tact.  Rick's continued presence among Willum and his friends leads to one unforeseeable incident after another, until the quiet, understanding, Willum finds himself contemplating violence — which leads to the surprising "twist" ending that no one saw coming!
