A couple lays in bed, the woman, face down on a pillow. An alarm clock shows that it’s 3:20 AM. The man has his arms tucked behind his head, against the headboard. He is not sleeping.

The scene dissolves to the next morning. Meet Ed Okin. Ed is tying his tie in front of a three-sided mirror in the bathroom.

“Want some coffee?” his wife, Ellen, calls from another room.

“Just a minute,” responds Ed.  He walks to the breakfast table. Ellen is reading a newspaper. Ed’s breakfast of bacon, eggs, orange juice, and toast are already on the table.
