Synopsis

Several people are involved in a bus crash. In flashback we see events from the 24 hours which lead up to their shared disaster, with the interleaving of seven stories showing how the characters happened to be on the bus at that particular time. Reflecting the seven story strands, the film's cast list is divided into seven sections, as follows: On The Bus, Joe of the Caledonian Market, Jackson the Shipping Clerk, Wakefield the 'City' Man, Blake the Gentleman of Fortune, Mr. Lightfoot in the Park, and Millie the Non-stop Variety Girl.
