An ordinary Monday. at an ordinary bank, in an ordinary town. There was no way of knowing what was about to happen.

An ordinary Monday. at an ordinary bank, in an ordinary town. There was no way of knowing what was about to happen.

Afterwards . . .

The first thing Martha thinks about is having a drink. There are six reasons why she shouldn't; she wrote them down over a year ago. Two of the reasons are the same. A name. She didn't think she'd ever see him again.

Roman, a fourteen year old Polish immigrant, is on the run. From the police. From Jimmy and his gang. He understands now, what it means to be caught between a rock and a hard place.

Tobias, old and alone, lies in a hospital bed in Dublin where the memories of Dresden are insistent visitors.

And for Cillian, the detective investigating the robbery, the past is like a current, pulling him back, reminding him of all he'd had. All he'd lost.

Each of the four is running from the moments that brought them here. To a place where the past cannot be undone and the future cannot be known.

A place called now.
