Synopsis: 

An old woman (70s) picks up a young man (late 20s, early 30s) on the steps of a Food Bank.  They exchange some food as they size each other up.  She invites him home for tea and he accepts - already crossing the borders of safety for both of them.  Over tea, and then sherry, and Bingo, they have a wide-ranging, revealing conversation.  She is not what she seems, a bag lady with an education and a past.  And he is a dropout with and education and no future.  They attach each other's values and she plays mind games with his head.  A strange attraction, almost sexual, escalates and she raises the stakes.  It's not tea and sympathy; it's tea and terror.
