Laura Jesson accidentally meets Alex Harvey at a railway station on her way home from a neighbouring town. Both married with children, the pair begin to question their previously happy home lives when their chance encounter turns into a regular acquaintance and their initial friendship becomes a burgeoning attraction.

Forced to hide their developing relationship from family and friends, the couple are almost discovered after being interrupted during a would-be tryst. Realising the impossibility of their situation, Laura and Alex must consider parting forever.
