Story


Ryan Brenner (Ben Barnes) a travelling musician and Jackie Laurel (Katherine Heigl) a former singer at a crossroads in her marriage, have a chance encounter while Ryan is busking on the streets of Ogden, Utah. After a sudden car accident propels them together, Ryan finds himself at Jackie's house for dinner. Ryan's battling to find the courage to write his own music while Jackie's fighting for independence from her estranged husband who wants her to return to their upscale Manhattan marriage.

When Ryan's musician mentor dies in a train accident and Jackie's husband threatens to take custody of her daughter, Ryan and Jackie find the strength and music they need in each other. What they don't know is, if the paths they choose will lead to one another.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]
“..mellow, digestibly sweet and embellished with lovely folk tunes..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]
“..as down-on-her-luck Jackie, Heigl lets ugly sweaters and minimal makeup carry the burden of acting. The one time we hear her sing, it's a duet..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]
