 plays a well-to-do businessman who comes across a blind girl () sewing coloured beads together for a living in a public park. They become friends, and she tells him about her life with her alcoholic mother () who accidentally blinded her as a child, while he helps her around the city that she was never taught to properly navigate. The relationship that develops between these two eventually threatens Winters, who suspects that this strange black man only wants her daughter for his own devious purposes.
