The American drama directed by Michael Hoffman.
Dawson Cole (James Marsden) is a boy brought up in a family in a town considered to be the most dangerous. His family is inclined to violence, he has problems with alcohol and is involved in drug-related matters. Amanda Collier (Michelle Monaghan), in turn, brought up in the traditional values that have made that wants to be a teacher. Differences of origin and unsympathetic people that make these two can not be together, but we both very much desire. Dawson, who in his youth had killed a man, he can not put up with it and repents, living alone and working on oil rigs. Amanda gets married, he has three children, but still cannot experience happiness. After years they meet in his hometown for the funeral of a friend. Feelings came back but the past does not give them peace.
A beautiful film about love. Unfortunately, life is not always wonderful. Sometimes we have to make difficult decisions. But the old love everything will survive.
