Bethany and Sam are deeply in love and have lived happily together for the past eight years. Bethany is eager to get married and start a family and is convinced this is the Christmas when Sam will propose to her.
When Bethany opens the jewellery box and finds a beautiful charm bracelet commemorating their life together instead of an engagement ring, she realizes Sam has given her a memorable past--but no promise of a future. The painful conversation that follows reveals they want different things and, devastated, Bethany leaves.
Stunned by her sudden departure, Sam suddenly appreciates the precious gift he has lost. With a renewed commitment to their relationship, Sam goes in search of Bethany, ready to reclaim his charmed life.
