Synopsis

Ben has two days to get from New York to Savannah for his wedding to Bridget. How hard can that be in this age of planes, trains and automobiles? When his plane goes skidding into Flushing Bay, Ben saves the life of his seatmate, an eccentric young woman named Sarah. In return, she becomes his faithful traveling companion--whether he likes it or not--and it's all downhill from there as the two head south. Panic doesn't really set in until Ben realizes that he's developing a definite attraction to the impetuous Sarah... and the feeling is decidedly mutual. It seems that man, machine and the forces of nature are conspiring to keep Ben from his vows, leaving him to wonder if this is some kind of cosmic test...and if it is, will he pass?
