It is 1951, and Mark Bergner is an American soldier who has just returned home from serving in the army. As he attempts to acclimate to a life he never asked for or wanted, no one knows that Mark has left the love of his life behind in Germany. Lauren Werner, the beautiful German girl who captured his heart despite their seemingly insurmountable obstacles and different backgrounds, is also doing her best to move on without him. Unfortunately all that remains in their stark reality is their memories. As ten years pass, Mark and Lauren carry on their individual lives, separated by an ocean and continent. Mark transforms into the CEO of a large company while Lauren becomes a well-known reporter and photographer who ends up in the midst of a civil war. Despite their professional successes, both Mark and Lauren are still relentlessly preoccupied by remembrances of their time together. After Mark decides to travel overseas in search of Lauren, their dream of reuniting finally comes true. Will their meeting have disastrous results, or will they recapture the special magic they once shared together? In this historical tale, two young lovers tragically separated by an ocean during the early 1950s struggle to rebuild their lives while holding out hope they will one day reunite.
