A Walk to Remember is the story of a young couple, Jamie (Mandy Moore) and Landon (Shane West). These two teenagers have known each other for years but run in different circles. Jamie is a kind, compassionate, Christian girl who sings in the choir. She is intelligent and self-confident, not worried about what others think or say about her. Landon, on the other hand, cares too much about what his peers think, and he lacks direction. When their worlds collide, both teens are profoundly affected.
