When London taxi driver Marshall detours suddenly off the rank at Euston Station to pick up a passenger he mistakes for his estranged daughter, he does not expect what happens next. Over a 45-minute trip to the Royal London Hospital, Marshall revisits the story of his life.

Meanwhile, paramedic Corinne is called to attend a road accident outside Euston and also travels to the Royal London, transporting an unconscious patient. As her patient's condition deteriorates it requires all her skill and compassion to keep her passenger alive.

For both cabbie Marshall and medic Corinne, a routine afternoon's work turns into a life and death journey. In this real-time drama, Marshall's and Corinne's stories shadow one another and interweave like vehicles caught in London traffic.
