Emma's life changes the day Ruben Templeton walks in and asks her out on a date. Over dinner, Ruben's undivided attention flatters her and she's a little disappointed when his best friend, Jesse Kimball, joins them.
Accustomed to a quiet life, twenty-seven-year-old Emma is hesitant but excited when Jesse calls the next day, to invite her to his birthday party. It doesn't take long for him to sweep her off her feet and when Emma receives devastating news, Jesse asks her to marry him. From the moment she agrees, their relationship starts to deteriorate. Hurt and confused, Emma turns to Ruben for advice.
Ruben suggests the young couple to give each other space for several weeks. Weeks Emma can use to help him locate his younger brother Axel, who has gone missing.
Emma agrees and soon finds herself on a road trip across the country.
Will Emma and Jesse's temporary separation clear the distance between them, or will she find love in the arms of another man?
