In this examination of relationships and what the heart truly wants, a man escapes from his wife so he can grab a burger and coffee at the local diner in the middle of the night. When an attractive, compatible, single young woman sits next to him, he must decide if he wants to return home to a wife who may not understand him, or embark on a new relationship with the woman by his side.
