Two strangers, board a San Francisco train at 4:30 AM. They're alone in the car, each is married, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She's an organized, sensible, psychologist. He's a free spirited, unemployed ad executive. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. Two opposites in an enclosed space, attacking each other's values but also being swayed and intrigued by them.

As the train ride ends it's obvious each of them has been changed.
