On an overnight flight from Halifax to Vancouver, Charlotte, an unemployed sales clerk on the verge of giving up on her dream of marriage and children, finds herself sitting next to the nervous and seemingly stuffy Cecil, a linguistic professor who is in the process of ending a long-term relationship with a woman who does not share his desire for a family. Despite an unpleasant start to their relationship as seatmates, over the course of the flight Charlotte and Cecil find themselves falling into one another’s lives and in love. Intercut with their meeting is a Saturday two years later. Charlotte and Cecil now live together in Halifax and are in the midst of a crisis in their relationship. What starts off seeming like a case of a couple’s general malaise, reveals itself to be the fallout from a very specific tragedy, one which forces Charlotte and Cecil to decide whether the end of a dream means the end of the relationship or the beginning of a real life together.
