Synopsis >

Mark Halliday's wife Jocelyn disappeared four years ago. He recently remarried after receiving the blessing of Jocelyn's brother Jeff. On his one year anniversary, he buys his new wife a painting. Only there is a mix-up and the painting that arrives isn't the one that Mark had purchased - instead it is a portrait of Jocelyn. Confused and shaken, Mark inquires about the painting. The auction house apologizes for the mix-up, but not before revealing the name of the painter, who says that the portrait of Jocelyn is actually a portrait of his own wife who lives with him in New England. Mark, with his new wife, travels to New England to see the painter and to figure out the painter's wife is Jocelyn returned.
