Two crane drivers are waiting for their work to begin. The two men have never met before and start getting to know each other.
The younger of the two is more concerned with his tangled love life than with the job at hand and the other is an ex teacher having to do overtime to make ends meet. The older man is standing in for the usual driver and is worried that someone might recognise him when the true nature of the job is revealed to him.
