Experiencing Interruptions?


In a small London cafe, a young writer is searching desperately for a story. Despite the crowds of the city, she has never felt so lonely. When a girl across from her leaves a clearly precious notebook behind, she sets off in hot pursuit to return it — and, inadvertently, begins a story of her own.
