When life hits the metaphorical fan and it all comes crashing down, do you face it head-on or go running in the opposite direction? This is one girl's story of the latter. And the silent pull towards something more. 

Meet Sophie Dawson. A young woman who appears to have it all. Until she doesn't. 

In this coming-of-age tale, we follow the adventures - and misadventures - of one girl's imminent quarter-life crisis and her one-way train ticket out of it. 

That's the hope anyway. 

On her cross-country journey, she meets Walt, a retired train conductor nearing the end of his life, who rides the same train back and forth in hopes of answering a similar question to her own: what next?  

Just Passing Through is a story of unlikely friendships and the silent pulls of life -travel, passion, purpose, serendipity, young love, old love - and how happenstance encounters we never saw coming can lead to fleeting connections, lasting impressions and the lessons we take with us along the way.
