Samantha Andrews (Jennifer Love Hewitt), an impulsive and free-spirited violin student, is in love with her English boyfriend Ian Wyndham (Paul Nicholls), a sensible young business executive. Ian’s in love with Sam but he either can’t or doesn’t know how to tell her the extent of his feelings, but to Sam it seems that Ian’s only love is his job. After receiving some sage advice from an all knowing taxi driver (Tom Wilkinson), Ian half-heartedly tries to tell Sam how he feels over a romantic dinner. But it doesn’t work. Distraught over the state of their relationship, Sam abandons Ian at the restaurant but is tragically killed when her taxi is hit by an oncoming car. Ian is devastated by the loss of Sam and can only think “if only” he had handled things differently. The next morning Ian is shocked to find out that he has a second chance to relive that day and possibly change the outcome. Can Ian show Sam how he truly feels before it’s too late or will he lose her again?...more
