One bus stop. Infinite destinations…
Winston, a man of particular particularities, is expecting nothing other than a perfectly normal day. The appearance of eleven year old Penny at his bus stop is the first thing to upset his routine, but what he doesn’t realize is that today, Penny would be the least of his worries. The universe has conspired to send these strangers on a fantastical journey through time and space, forcing them to confront their fears head-on as they struggle to find their way home. But will they claim their place in the universe?
