Arthur and Ben meet in a New York post office. Arthur’s convinced it’s destiny that they met, but Ben isn’t, and leaves before he even gives Arthur his name. But the universe isn’t done writing their love story, and after some crazy, desperate attempts to find each other, the two reunite. But they know at the end of the summer, Arthur will return to Georgia, leaving them wondering if they should end their relationship, or try for what they can. In the end, they call things off but remain good friends, with both of them thinking that one day, they will re-enter each other’s lives.
