Her life is full of tragedy, starting with her parents death in a car crash on her ninth birthday, up to her fianc ̌Garrett mysteriously breaking up with her and moving away mere days before their wedding. Always a realist and a cynic, Sophie knows that nothing lasts forever and disappointment is always around the corner, and is dismayed when Garrett comes back into her life. Garrett has had a change of heart and wants another chance to make her happy. She says that true happiness is fleeting, while Garrett contends that there is no limit. They make an agreement: Garrett will put an ad in the local paper seeking long-term happiness, and if he gets 100 responses that meet Sophies exacting standards, she will go out on one last date and hear why he left her."@en ;
