At a top secret research facility in the 1960s, a lonely janitor forms a unique relationship with an amphibious creature that is being held in captivity.

The Goodman LP has the correct Columbia label for the film's 1962 setting but the Miller album, which is shown on her turntable, has a green label. Miller's record company, RCA Victor, used black labels for its popular releases.
