Charlie (Matthew Dennis Lewis) is a young loner who works at a diner for a mirthless boss (Julie Delpy), struggling to even pay his rent. Seemingly his only friend is regular customer Mr. Jones (Roger Guenveur Smith), an affable businessman with ties to the mob. One evening, after an odd exchange with a bartender who says luck is coming his way, Charlie crosses paths with a blind homeless man who is his exact double, a doppelganger. Perplexed and intrigued by the discovery, Charlie invites the man into his life. What follows is a twisted, philosophical examination of desperation, fear, love and greed, told through the lens of classic film noir, with a celestial twist.
