It's a frosty night in November as a group of passengers climb aboard the Orient Express for the journey of a lifetime from London to Venice. As they settle into the luxury of their cabins and take their first sips of champagne, they all have different hopes and expectations.
Some have waited a lifetime for the experience, for others, it is a surprise; for many, a celebration. One thing is certain, the journey won't be uneventful.
As they share lunch, afternoon tea, cocktails and dinner to the tinkling of the grand piano, there are revelations, confessions and assignations. As the train sweeps on, stories unfold against the most romantic and infamous setting in the world.
