“Karen Kingsbury’s The Bridge” is the sweeping tale of Molly Callens (Findlay) and Ryan Kelly (Nash), two young students who share a profound friendship their first semester in college, a time that becomes the defining moment of their lives. At their favorite bookstore and coffee shop, The Bridge, they spend countless hours studying and inspiring the other to dream their 10-year goal. They bond with the owners of The Bridge, Charlie (McGinley) and Donna Barton (Ford), a couple who designed the bookstore as a place where people can connect and be part of an extended family. The first half of the movie concluded with Molly and Ryan’s relationship being in question with their separate expectations for their futures – Molly following in her father’s footsteps as CEO of a large corporation, and Ryan pursuing his dreams of being a professional singer.
The second-half of the movie picks up in the present day, seven years later, with Ryan returning home from being on the road touring as a professional singer and Molly working at her father’s corporation. After they both receive devastating news regarding The Bridge and their beloved friends Charlie and Donna, Molly and Ryan meet again in Franklin, TN. They are reminded of their unspoken love and dreams about a possible future together, which never happened. Can they open their hearts to second chances -- for them, for Charlie and Donna, and for The Bridge?
