Sam Baldwin, a Chicago architect, has just lost his wife to cancer and decides he needs a complete change of scene. He and his eight-year old son Jonah move to Seattle but Jonah thinks that his father needs a new wife in order to get his life back on track. One evening, he calls into a national radio advice show and persuades his father to also go on the air. The voice (and call) is heard by thousands of women across the nation, including Annie Reed, a journalist from Baltimore, Maryland. Annie, although engaged to be married to Walter, can't rest until she meets Sam, which she eventually does, at the top of the Empire State Building in New York City.
