A spiteful waiter’s life is destined to change when he crosses paths with an enigmatic patron who holds a morbid obsession with the number TEN. Upon confronting the patron about his compulsion with the number TEN, the waiter is not prepared for what he hears. “TEN was the age of my son when his life was taken from him, TEN is number of times I stabbed my wife to death when I found out she was cheating on me... TEN is my lucky number.” TEN may be just a number, but this young man will learn that the connection is much more profound and convoluted then he could ever imagine.
