A romantic dramedy about a woman sending texts to her late fiancé and finding new love where she didn't expect to. Based on the novel by Sofie Cramer.

Clara simply can't get over the loss of her beloved Ben, who died two years ago in a car accident. Even her headstrong roommate Katja is barely able to coax her friend back to life. However, Clara continues sending wistful text messages to Ben's old cell phone number... without realizing that the number has been recently reassigned. With the result that her romantic, loving memories pop up directly in the display window of sports journalist Mark. Perplexed yet touched, he reads through all this longing-turned-SMS... and in his confusion, stumbles from one blunder to the next regarding his girlfriend Fiona. All the same: he's got to find the mysterious stranger at all costs, and enlists his best friend David to help him in the search...
