A pop song, called "A Chance for Love" is playing on the juke box of a seedy urban bar. It's late and the bartender calls "Closing time!," only to get a testy response from his last customer. Turns out they have something in common: a desire to end it all, tonight. They make a pact to do so, only to be sung out of it by a Mysterious Woman who shows up in a vision and sings a death-blues so dirty they decide to stay alive.
