Beloved White Mouse

Helene rides her motor scooter by Fritz, the “White Mouse,” every morning as he directs traffic through the intersection. Though he yields the right-of-way to her often, they have never spoken and she wants more than his friendly gesture. Helene makes a plan to get to know him better by committing a deliberate traffic violation.
