One December day in London, Laurie’s eye is drawn to a guy waiting at a bus stop but despite her mentally urging him to jump on board so she can meet him, her double-decker bus drives off without him. Now a believer in love at first sight, Laurie can’t forget him and looks for him everywhere. But she never imagines that when her best friend and flatmate Sarah introduces her new boyfriend Jack, that he would be her Bus Boy. Over ten years, Laurie and Jack become firm friends, without Sarah ever knowing about their earlier connection.
