Based on the best selling novel by Nicholas Sparks A WALK TO REMEMBER follows the developing relationship of a young couple, Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore) and Landon Carter (Shane West) living in the small port town of Beaufort, North Carolina.
Jamie was the last person Landon was likely to fall for. Serious and conservative, she was the daughter of the town's Baptist minister and not afraid of letting people know that her faith was the most important part of her life, even if it cost her some friends. Landon hung with the in-crowd - an aimless, moody, reckless guy who breezed through school on looks and bravado. He had no plans, no future and no faith in himself.
One night a prank that he and his buddies set up goes terribly wrong and lands a kid in the hospital. As punishment, Landon must tutor a young student at a poor school and participate in the Drama Club's Spring play, two activities the principal hopes will teach him some humility. They also happen to throw him into close contact with Jamie. Clearly in over his head, Landon is forced to ask her for help.
Soon, against his own expectations, Landon finds himself falling in love. But it isn't easy. For reasons of her own, Jamie does everything she can to run away from romance until it becomes impossible to deny and being together will test everything that they believe in. Most of all, it will test the power of love and faith to transform a life into something worth living.
