Moments in our lives that seem insignificant at the time they occur can stay with us for years, if not forever. We are haunted by what could have been, what small differences may have changed the outcome of these moments and maybe our entire lives. Lucky Girl recalls one such moment - a moment that was simple but could have turned out very differently.
