Clara simply can't get over the loss of her beloved Ben, who died two years ago in a car accident. Even her headstrong roommate Katja is barely able to coax her friend back to life. However, Clara continues sending wistful text messages to Ben's old cell phone number... without realizing that the number has been recently reassigned, and her romantic, loving memories pop up directly in the new phone of sports journalist Mark.
