Cox is a hatter during the day. Box is a printer at night. Their friendly lodger, Mr Bouncer — who was dissatisfied that his apartment should be left empty half the day (or half the night, whichever you prefer) — realised that these two gentlemen would never meet each other if they were sharing the same room without knowing it. And he'll get twice the rent on top of it! What a clever plan! Well, it was, that is, until Cox, upon arriving late to work, is given 'a day off' by his punctual proprietor. As the two men meet for the first time, they quickly discover they seem to share more than just a room...
