Nick Morrison and Emily Conlon are two young lovers who have met in the 1940's during the beginning of World War II. Unfortunately, Nick is a soldier enlisted to help the Allies defeat the Germans while Emily is a nurse who are separated after the escalating tensions of the war worsen.
During the war, Nick is killed in action while Emily suffers from a terminal illness which completely rips her life apart, until one day, Nick is revived by a mysterious force that grants him the ability to live longer for an uncertain period of time; Emily is cured at the last minute minutes before her death and discovers that the same revival that brought Nick back to life is also granting her immortality. But, while maintaining their youthful appearance, their minds will age as well.
Throughout the course of their lives, Nick and Emily desperately fall in love with each other and make it past the most historical events in their lives (End of WWII, Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam, Modern Day technology, etc.) but it soon gets to a point where Nick and Emily feel that they are holding each other back and are losing feelings for each other - Nick lives with his emotional animosities and PTSD while Emily continues to suffer from her “cured” terminal illness and is contemplating suicide to put an end to her immortality.
And throughout their history, Nick and Emily will be influenced by the many people who are bewildered by their youthful appearance and the will to sustain love, no matter what.
Reinterpretation Comparison Pitch: Like Crazy meets The Age of Adeline meets The Notebook.
MPAA: Rated PG-13 for thematic material throughout, sexuality and nudity, brief violence, and strong language.
Note: The character's names are changed along with more people from the 1940's to 2016. I would also get rid of the wizard granting the two young adults immortality and create a mystery as to how both have been brought back to life and are given enhanced longevity.
