Set on a fire escape in Brooklyn at dawn, a boy and girl meet to perform a weekly ritual in their makeshift crow's nest. She's the spotter, he's the sniper and they're hunting alley rats. As they sip coffee in the chilly morning air and wait for activity in the alley below, they converse idly about urinals and Gouda. As the rats emerge, the hunt begins. She gives the calls and he pulls the trigger. All the while, the conversation escalates, revealing there's more at stake for both of them than the life or death of an alley rat.
