Emma and Dexter meet on the night of their university graduation. We see them every year on the anniversary of that date - July 15th. Emma is smart but success doesn't come quickly for her, whereas for Dexter, success and women come very easily. Through the years they grow apart as their lives take different directions and they meet other people. But as they grow apart from those other people and their lives start taking opposite directions again, Emma and Dexter find that they belong with each other.
Dexter (Jim Sturgess) en Emma (Anne Hathaway) ontmoeten elkaar voor het eerst bij hun eindexamen in 1988. Ze blijven elkaar voor de volgende twintig jaar op 15 juli ontmoeten. We blijven hun levens volgen tot ze er achter komen dat ze voor elkaar bestemd zijn.
On July 15, 1988 -- the day of their college graduation -- two people from opposite sides of the tracks begin a lifelong friendship. Emma (Anne Hathaway), an idealist from a working-class family, wants to make the world a better place. Dexter (Jim Sturgess), a playboy, thinks the world is his oyster. For the next 20 years, the two friends reunite on the 15th of each July, sharing dreams, tears and laughter -- until they discover what they've been searching for, each other.
