Helena is a lawyer with a penchant for expensive wines and the husband of another woman. She waits in vain for her lover on a summer Friday night. At the other end of the bar, Bob, an unassuming man, is waiting to be given the keys to a stolen car while reading Dostoevsky. She is way out of his league; he is not her type at all. Nothing to push them into each other’s embrace. But that is where they will end up on this night! So begins 48 hours of adventures throughout Edinburgh with car chases, Japanese bondage, a marriage that goes wrong, but also, and mostly, a coming together, their coming together, which will change the course of their lives.
