This was Lee’s senior film at NYU.
A lonely Young Man meets a Waitress working the late shift at a New York City diner. It is a chance encounter that should go nowhere, except that the Young Man notices a mysterious Cameraman stalking the Waitress, taking pictures of her from afar. As the night develops into a game of cat and mouse with the Cameraman, the Young Man’s motivations become muddied: is he following the Waitress to protect her or is he taking advantage of the situation to stalk her himself?
