The Film

Stopping Before We Go is a modern day story of a series of strangers who interact while waiting for their delayed bus. While at first the three independent couplings may seem like they wouldn't talk with one another, something sparks a conversation between all of them and they find themselves immersed in discussions that help guide a future thought or decision in their life. It's a story about how a complete stranger can sometimes be the greatest friend and advice giver at a moment in time when our lives may unknowingly need it the most and how that moment can be completely unexpected, yet remembered forever.
