This is the story of Tom (Joseph Gordon Levitt), a dreamy-eyed romantic virgin, and Summer (Zooey Deschanel), a cynical non-believer in love whose favorite Beatle is Ringo, and their rocky, on again off again romance, but the primary hook that was supposed to make this film something different is that the story is told out of sequence...each scene is represented by the number corresponding to each day of Tom and Summer's relationship.
