If there was one word to describe Ian's life it would be 'trudge'. He is an every-person, minding his own business, living his life, without so much as ever looking up. However, things begin to change after Emily smiles at him on the way to work

The total opposite to Ian - Emily loves her life. She is joyful and full of energy. She finds the mundane entertaining, and always tries her best to remain positive. She takes it upon herself to cheer Ian up even though she should be the one who is miserable
