Spoiler Points:
• Gerry (Gerard Butler) dies of a brain tumor right off the bat.
• After his death, Holly (Hilary Swank) plummets into a manic depression of highs and lows living in her apartment like Miss Havisham from Great Expectations. Her family and friends come to surprise her for her birthday finding her singing, unshowered, along with old movies on the tv. A cake is delivered that reads, "Happy Birthday, Holly Love, Gerry". At first she's confused and upset demanding to know who did this. A tape recorder secured to the underside of the box, however, in Gerry's own voice reveals his plan. He's going to be sending her letters throughout the next year, and she has to agree to do what he says.
• Daniel Connelly (Harry Connick Jr.), whom Holly's mother Patricia (Kathy Bates) has hired to help out at the bar she owns, tries to warm Holly up. He finds they do have some, albeit few common interests.
• Gerry gives Holly and her two best friends: Denise (Lisa Kudro) and Sharon (Gina Gershon) a trip to Ireland. Patricia is against the idea of Holly going, but she has not vote in the matter.
• On the trip, the women lose their oars on a small fishing boat in the middle of a huge lake. Here, Denise announces she's getting married and Sharon that she's pregnant. Holly is frustrated by the news since she's not married and never got pregnant before Gerry died. The handsome William (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) whom they encountered earlier in a pub singing a song that Gerry used to sing in his band when Holly first met him rescues the trio.
• William drives the girls back to the home they are staying in, and ends up staying the night with Holly. In the morning, they realized they already know each other: She's Gerry's Holly, and he's Gerry's William—best friends since they were six years old. He was playing in the band the night Gerry and Holly finally connected up for good. Their chemistry is electric, but Holly's still not ready for a relationship with anyone despite, perhaps, William being the only man alive that wouldn't be offended by her constant Gerry stories as he had a load of his own and felt the loss nearly the same.
• Holly visits Gerry's parents whom she'd never met before. She is welcomed warmly and given a letter by his mother. She has no idea how Gerry knew she'd visit his parents. The letter takes her to his fort, more of a wall, and we learn now that Holly and Gerry actually met in Ireland when she was on a trip abroad during college. She's out walking looking for a park, he finds and helps her, they connect, sort of, she leaves with his leather jacket. In a pub that night, she finds him singing, and the rest was history.
• Back home, Holly, using inspiration from Gerry, figures out what she needs to do with her life. She wants to design high fashion shoes. She enrolls in classes and begins her work to the utter exclusion of her friends. Notably, Denise is furious because she was expecting Holly to be her maid of honor in her wedding, but Holly never returns her calls. The two reconcile, and Holly designs her shoes for the wedding and is offered a spot in the bride's party.
• Holly and Daniel attempt a relationship, but a kiss at Yankee Stadium leads them to the simultaneous conclusion that it is like kissing your sister and brother, so they agree to be just friends.
• Holly tries to reconcile things with her mother, and her mother explains what it's been like to raise her daughters on her own with no husband. On a bridge in Central Park, she gives Holly the final letter from Gerry and reveals that she's been the one, all along, making Gerry's things happen, despite her better judgment. She couldn't resist his request for her to do this for him. Holly is moved by the gesture from her mother and opens and reads the final letter.
• She then takes her mother to Ireland and to meet her former in-laws. She runs in to William again, there's still chemistry but who knows. There's also surely chemistry between William's father and Patricia.
