After his significant other Maggie passes away, Sam Baldwin and his 8-year-old child Jonah move from Chicago to Seattle to get away from the melancholy connected with Maggie’s demise. After eighteen months Sam is as yet lamenting and can’t rest. In spite of the fact that Jonah misses his mom, he needs his dad to get another spouse regardless of Sam having not mulled over dating once more. On Christmas Eve, Sam winds up spilling his heart out on a national radio syndicated program about his mystical and flawless marriage to Maggie, and about how much he misses her. Among the numerous ladies who hear Sam’s story and become hopelessly enamored with him exclusively due to it is Annie Reed, a Baltimore-based daily paper writer. Annie’s infatuation with Sam’s story and by association Sam himself is despite being already engaged. Her relation with her fiancee Walter is not what she dreamt of about the love life. She even keeps in touch with Sam proposing they meet on the Empire State Building .
