Charlie won a professional boating race with his brother Sam. while he had a bright future ahead of him, Sam died in an accident caused by his carelessness. he gave up his scholarship and became a caretaker at the cemetery that his brother was buried in. while running in the forest, he discovered that he could interact with Sam's spirit. they met everyday at sunset, playing baseball. one day he met with Tess, a sailor that aimed to sail around the world. Charlie was forced to choose between the promise he made with Sam, or going after the girl he loved.
the film evolved around Charlie, who refused to move on after the death of his brother, had love motivate him to take the very first step. there were no ups and downs for the film, mostly predictable and probably average. the plot obviously wasn't original but it was sufficient to keep us going until the very end. we were unable to brush off a feeling that the film was made with the purpose of selling Zac Efron's face to its fans, especially after seeing way too many shots of him staring into the sunset with those big blue eyes.
