On a Saturday night in the spring of 2001, twenty-eight-year-old Cecily Gardner is sitting alone in a dive bar in New York's East Village when she meets Grant and over the next several hours -- and shots of tequila -- the two forge an unlikely connection. They can't seem to say goodbye, and for the first time in her carefully constructed life, Cecily follows her heart instead of her head. Then Grant disappears in the chaos of 9/11. Cecily spots his face on a missing-person poster, and realizes she is not the only one searching for him.
