Synopsis: Lionel has been on the streets for almost a year and has made one friend, a kind and patient nurse named Agatha who visits him everyday. When Agatha accidentally gifts Lionel with $100, intending to hand over $10, Lionel uses this mistake as an opportunity to turn things around. But a hidden compulsion prevents him from completing the task and when Agatha returns to ask for the money back, he is unable to relinquish it. Lionel succumbs to his dangerous impulse and exposes his secret to her. Agatha leaves in a hurry, unable to process what she’s seen. In the end, Lionel is all alone – emptier than ever before.
