Marie and Ben, fellow commuters, fall into friendly conversation on a train, but things turn comical and then dark as Ben realises far too late that Marie is playing a psychological game with him.  Enter Terry, an unsuspecting stranger, full of swagger, who is about to find himself caught up in their game and way out of his depth.
