In a cafe, a white woman walks away from her table to get silverware. When she returns, she sees a black man eating her lunch. She shares her dinner with the stranger, and he gets coffee for the two of them. Not until he leaves does she look across the room and see that her own meal was on another table. The story derives from a classic urban legend, usually referred to as "A Packet of Biscuits" and circulating since 1972. The same plot was used in the Dutch film "Boeuf Bourgignon" (1988), although neither filmmaker was aware of the other film.

"February 3, 2016 Watched on Youtube Rewatched I was taking a part in my high school film class that day when the teacher recommended we watch 2 short films. This film and the only below it. Both of them share some similarities. Very simple premises that take place in a singular environment (both of them being forms of transportation). Both of them also kind of deal with racial relationships, focusing on a prejudiced older woman and a black man. When watching these films, I didn't realize the si"
