While waiting for his girlfriend at a train station, Trevor wanders into a bar called The On My Way Café, where he meets an eclectic clientele of fellow wanderers, all appearing to be “on their way” somewhere, but never leaving. In this bar, he meets Clara, a beautifully confident and stoic married woman who has been waiting for her husband to return for years. Trevor and Clara experience each other in this bar where time seems to stand still, where customers get stuck, finding solace in each other’s seemingly endless wait for their loved ones.
