Čustvena zgodba, posneta po knjižni uspešnici Jojo Moyes, sledi prikupni, toda vedno malce raztreseni in naivni Lou, ki mora obrniti nov list v knjigi svojega življenja. Ko izgubi fanta in službo, se zaposli na dvorcu mladega premožnega bankirja Willa, ki je v prometni nesreči postal povsem hrom. Lou začne skrbeti zanj, vendar kmalu spozna, da Will trpi tudi duševno, saj je izgubil nekdanje veselje do življenja. Ko s svojimi prismojenimi dogodivščinami omehča njegovo srce, se skupaj podata na novo odkrivanje drobnih lepot življenja, kar med njima splete nepričakovana romantična čustva.
Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of color. And neither of them knows they're going to change each other for all time.
