In the TV movie Autumn Dreams, teenage sweethearts Annie and Ben decide to elope before leaving their small town in Iowa for the big city. But Annie’s parents manage to annul the marriage and Annie never leaves the small town. Fast forward fifteen years and Annie and Ben are both engaged to other people. (Ben made it to New York.) Turns out their annulment was never finalized. So in order to move on with their lives, they meet to make their divorce legal but you know that old flame never died out.
