Marcus Wright (Daniel Dambroff), a young English teacher from a quiet New England town is in love with Gabby (Elise McNamara). A devastating accident nearly kills her and renders her in a persistent vegetative state. As a loyal and dedicated young man, Marcus is determined to marry her one day.

However, he's not only challenged by this deeply crushing event, but is made to jump many unexpected hurdles, including fending off Gabby's mother who clings to Marcus during her emotional breakdown. As if life wasn't complex enough, Marcus then meets Elliot (Christopher Clawson) at a grief counseling meeting. Elliot is a published author who wrote "Brilliant Mistakes," a story about the regret for not having spent time with his deceased younger brother. Marcus is a big fan of Elliot's vibrant and colorful character, and of his writing. Marcus and Elliot share their personal tragedies with one another and forge a strong friendship. The film's shocking, yet inspirational ending is truly a surprise.​
