Imagine following the lives of two people for over twenty years.
After one day together – July 15th, 1988 (the date is important), two young people Emma and Dexter meet at the University of Edinburgh. Emma is from a working-class background, she is a woman of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. Dexter is a wealthy charmer, born with a silver spoon in his mouth, who has graduated from an elite university, and thinks that the world is his playground.
For the next two decades, we watch key moments of their lives as they happen on July 15th over a period of 20 years. Their friendships and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. Again and again, they nearly come together again.
