The plot revolves around a woman who, to ease the pain after tragically losing her fiance, starts to send romantic texts to his old cell. It turns out that the phone number has been reassigned to a man across town suffering from similar heartbreak.
The two meet and feel an undeniable connection, but can't seem to leave the past behind.
In the remake, the music and influence of Dion, known for her Oscar-winning love ballad 'My Heart Will Go On' from Titanic and other inspirational songs like 'The Power of Love', gives them the courage to take a chance on love again.
