In London, the public relation Helen is fired from her position in a PR company. While returning home, she does not catch the train in the subway. But in another possibility of her life, she catches the train in the subway. The story shows two parallel lives of Helen: in one life, she stays with her boyfriend Gerry, and in the other life, she finds that Gerry cheats her with Lydia and falls in love with James Hammerton.

Peter Howitt is good friends with Brian May, of the band Queen, and gave him a copy of the finished script, asking him to write a song for the film. May penned the song "Another World", but was told a few months into production that they couldn't use it, because another record company was co-financing the production. May kept the song and it became the thematic thread for his solo album "Another World" (1998). See more »
At one point Helen chastises Anna for asking her "more questions than Jeopardy". Jeopardy! is an American quiz show that has only been briefly aired on British television. Even though it is well known in the UK, it isn't sufficiently part of popular culture that two British women would use this show as an analogy. See more »

This movie will make you think for years on end, Just that one little thing could change your life for good.
This movie is running to stories of Helen Quilley who has just been fired of her work place for drinking the night before has she rushes to the train station, while go down the stairs a little girl get in the way and she goes around girl and train door shut in face.
Then we see the movie rewind and she back on top the stairs this time mum pulls the girl way from wall so she can get past, just about got on to the train, in this scene we can she her on train also on outside train.
From here we see both side of stories, we see how life would have been if she did catch the train and we can also see what would have happened if she missed the Train.
The movie was well written and Gwyneth Paltrow is was outstanding in this movie.
8/10 ending was disappointed but it better then ending i was thinking of.
