A New Man

After his wife leaves him, Charles starts the routine of having breakfast every morning at the same coffee shop in hopes of starting his life up again. One morning he is mistaken for somebody else, and instead of correcting the stranger, he assumes the role of the other person. This goes on for a number of subsequent occasions, each time allowing Charles to become somebody completely new. While this fleeting form of human contact is a deception, it allows him to fill the void in his life and feel connected—even when he finds himself in a life-endangering position.
