A late-night call unfolds between two strangers. This real audio recording of a conversation between a woman named Jane and a U.S. army veteran gets off to a tentative start, and just like the two callers, we are also groping in the dark. She offers him a listening ear. The topics soon become deeper as the man talks about his vulnerabilities and problems. Then the conversation takes an unexpected turn.
