Sometimes what we have is not enough...

She doesn't know his name and he doesn't know hers, but they do know they were meant for each other. For Alexander Velazquez and Evelyn Sinclair it's love at first sight but they are too caught up in proving themselves at work and to their families to take a chance on the stranger they happened to lock eyes with through a train window.

Alexander, an ambitious lawyer from a working-class neighborhood, and Evelyn, a daughter of privilege trying to make it on her own, want to find meaning in their lives while looking in wrong directions. A series of missed connections bring them tantalizingly close meeting, but something or someone always seems to get in the way. As they watch each other through their office windows, all they can do is wonder.
