Tagline: Sometimes love has a life of its own.

Plot: It is 1972. Young Coast Guard officer Fielding Pierce (Billy Crudup) is passionately drawn to Sarah Williams (Jennifer Connelly), an idealistic activist. She becomes his great love, and he becomes hers: "We will never be apart," Sarah writes him, in a letter. But, in 1974, fate brutally cleaves their futures: Sarah is murdered in a car-bombing.

It is 1982. County attorney (DA's office) Fielding Pierce lives well in Chicago with his socialite girlfriend, Juliet Beck (Molly Parker). Juliet's uncle, Isaac Green (Hal Holbrook), is Fielding's mentor. The governor hand-picks Fielding to run for a Congressional seat. Fielding will soon have everything he's strived for...except his lost love. Suddenly, he becomes consumed by memories, and then visions, of Sarah. Fielding's sister, Caroline Pierce (Janet McTeer), lends personal and professional support, but his life begins to unravel. Is Fielding losing his sanity, or is Sarah still alive? As the past floods into the present, Fielding struggles to focus on what is, and what was, most important to him.
