Teller works the front desk of a large company. Ignored by his co-workers, he spends long, wary days waiting for phone calls that never come. His only other responsibility is to make coffee for everyone. His problem: finding who has been systematically finishing the pot and leaving it to burn without letting him know. Today, he finds out who the culprit is: a forty-something woman who passes him many times a day without even noticing him. Teller decides to confront her. Instead, protected in the small kitchen, Teller and his co-worker get to spend a moment of shared loneliness and pain though the fleeting and nostalgic dream of a Tango.
