The film begins in the town of Hudson, Ohio, where Scott "Scotty" Thomas is dumped by his girlfriend, Fiona, immediately after his high school graduation in 2004. With his best friend, Cooper Harris, Scotty attends a graduation party that evening where the band performs a song detailing the affair Fiona was having with the band's singer.
Scotty returns home drunk and angry and reads an e-mail from his German pen pal, Mieke, who Scotty calls "Mike", expressing sympathy for Scotty and suggesting they meet in person. Cooper suggests that "Mike" may be a sexual predator, and Scotty tells Mieke to stay away from him. Scotty's younger brother informs him that "Mieke" is a common German girl's name. Realizing that he had mistaken her name, and that he has feelings for Mieke, Scotty tries to contact her again, but finds that Mieke has blocked his email address. Scotty decides to travel to Europe with Cooper to find Mieke and apologize in person.
