Synopsis

Two complete strangers, Anna (32) and Stephen (30), are brought together by chance by an elderly man named Roger who waits for his wife on a station platform. While they sit together in the deserted waiting room, Roger quietly reminisces about the special things he and his wife did when they were younger. As Stephen and Anna listen they are drawn together and make a connection. Anna is a single mother trying to do the right thing but sucked into a damaging affair with her best friend's husband. Stephen is coasting in a relationship with a partner who suddenly decides she wants a baby. Their fateful meeting acts as a catalyst for them to examine and challenge what is going on in their different relationships, and make hard but positive decisions for themselves. If they can change their lives perhaps they can meet again.
