A commuter train leaves San Francisco Airport at 4:15 a.m. on its way to the East Bay.
A man and a woman who have nothing in common but their crossword puzzles are on that BART train. She takes crosswords (and life) very seriously; he treats everything like a game. She's a bean counter; he's a loose cannon.
By the time they reach their destination and depart, the encounter has changed their lives. But will they meet again?
Over 40 Million people in the U.S. do crossword puzzles every day. Most never finish them; a driven few would rather die than give up. 2 Across has one of each, and the sparks that fly will have you laughing till you drop.
