When she meets Adebayo, a doctor from Nigeria, Archibald's Café is the only place they feel like they belong. 1977: Amara feels enraged by the injustice she sees every day. With London consumed by anger, she decides to take action. 2010: Gina is a daydreaming artist whose efforts crumble into disaster. Her hopes for a career are over as she finds herself making lattes at the café where her grandparents went on their first date. Across the lives of three generations of women, London can be a harsh and beautiful place. Yet, chance friendships hold people together, when the world feels like it is falling apart.
