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 world.
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.
