While at the waiting room of a railway station, Alec Harvey's kind act of removing grit from Laura's eye, sparks an attraction, that first blossoms into friendship and then grows further, into love.
However, Laura is married and consumed by the guilt of having an extramarital affair. As they continue to meet every Thursday in the small café, with their passion for each other growing stronger with each meeting, how will their relationship pan out? Will Laura break boundaries to unite with Alec or will they go their separate ways?
