We are all here for just a moment, and it’s up to us to make it the best moment possible. To challenge ourselves, to learn and teach, find meaning in the day, and think about our purpose. Perhaps ponder questions such as: Is there a difference between love and friendship? In choosing to do right over wrong, who decides what is considered ‘right?’ Are we really judged for the choices we make?
Lucy and Ed continually find one another when each is experiencing a life crisis. Over the years, a friendship forms form these chance encounters, and brings with it questions. As there is a level of secrecy to their relationship, could they be doing something wrong? Are they allowed to feel anything but friendship towards one another? When it is finally decided that they are in charge of what happens next, it is too late to change the course of their path.
