When yet another anniversary passes without a marriage proposal from her boyfriend, Anna (Amy Adams) decides to take action.

Fate has other plans, however, and Anna winds up on the other side of the Emerald Isle with handsome, but surly, Declan -- an Irishman who may just lead Anna down the road to true love.
