Rob is the thirty-something owner of a London record shop who's mastered the art of finding rare vinyl and losing girlfriends. Laura just dumped him, and Rob is totally moving on. Hopefully. Well, there's a chance it could still work out!
Could Laura actually be "the one?" Might this turn out to be one of the Top 5 Most Romantic Comebacks Ever?!
