Synopsis

On a magical night when they are in in their 20s, Jonathan meets Sara. He finds it love at first sight, but Sara believes in destiny. After 10 years the two, with 3,000 miles between them, must decide if fate wants them to be together again. When love feels like magic, it is called destiny; when destiny has a sense of humor, it is serendipity.
