The Best of Me tells the heart-rending story of two small-town
former high school sweethearts who come from opposite sides of
the tracks.  Now, middle-aged, they have taken wildly divergent
paths but neither has lived the life they imagined, and neither
can forget the passionate first love that forever altered their

When they are forced to come back to their hometown for the
funeral of the man who was their mentor, they are forced to
confront the choices each has made and ask whether love can
truly re-write the past.
