2: Stage 1- Ordinary World Henry Roth works at the Sea Life Park in Hawaii as a marine vet. He is quite a lady's man and dates women tourists while they are on vacation. This eliminates commitment for him. Also, for ten years, Henry has been working on a sailboat to sail to Bristol Bay, Alaska, to study walruses.
3: Stage 2- Call to Adventure Henry meets Lucy, a local girl who lives on the island, at the diner he stops at. They really connect and make a date for the next morning. When he arrives, she acts like she doesn't know who he is. The waitress tells him that she lost all her short term memory in a car accident and doesn't remember him.
4: Stage 3- Refusal to the Call At first, Henry doesn't believe that she really has short term memory loss. He thinks that it's a trick to convince him to go away. His ego is hurt when she doesn't remember him and he is disappointed.
5: Stage 4- Meeting with the Mentor Ula, one of Henry's buddies and co-worker, tells Henry that he should go back to the diner and convince Lucy to go on another date with him. He says it's the perfect thing for Henry because there will be no commitment and she won't remember anything.
6: Stage 5- Crossing the First Threshold | Henry is determined to get Lucy to go out with him again like on the first day they met. Everyday he starts thinking up ways to "accidentally" run into her. He is trying to get her to remember him.
8: Enemies At first Sue, Nick, Lucy's brother, and Lucy's dad are Henry's enemies because they think that Henry wants to hang around Lucy for the wrong reasons. Lucy's memory is also an enemy. | Tests Henry can't stop thinking about Lucy and can't even go on dates with other women. There's only one problem; she doesn't remember him at all, because of her short term memory loss. He has to get her to go on a date with him every day. | Allies Ula and Ula's children are his allies throughout the entire movie and so is Alexa. Sue, Nick, Lucy's brother, and Lucy's dad are Henry's allies only after Henry proves that he is a good guy.
10: She learns about her memory and the accident. Lucy says she has to hear the news from the doctor to believe it. Henry takes her because he feels the same way. The next day Henry shows Lucy a video he made that she watches each morning so she is aware of her accident and doesn't continue to live a lie. | Stage 7- Approach to the Inmost Cave | Outside of the diner, a policeman gives Lucy a ticket for expired tabs on her car. This is how she finds out that it's not the day or year she thinks it is.
11: Stage 8- Ordeal/ Death Experience Lucy overhears Henry tell her dad that he's going to give up his dream of sailing in order to be with Lucy. She decides that she has to break up with him and erase him from her life so that he can have a chance to have a better life. She wants him to follow his dream. Henry is crushed. He finally committed to someone and it backfired in his face.
12: Stage 9- Reward Before Henry goes on his big sailing trip, Lucy's father comes and tells him that Lucy only sang on the days she met Henry and that she is still singing. He also gives Henry a Beach Boys CD. Henry realizes that her dad is trying to tell him that Lucy remembers him, but she doesn't know who he is.
13: Stage 10- The Road Back Henry turns his boat around and goes back to get Lucy who has been living in a memory institution. He realizes that he can't live without her and he is going to win her back no matter what.
14: Stage 11- Resurrection When Henry finds Lucy she recognizes his face, but doesn't remember who he is. She shows him her art room that is filled with pictures that she has created of him. He is always in her dreams she tells him.
15: Stage 12- Return with Elixir Henry makes a new movie for Lucy to watch each morning. We find out that they are now married and have a daughter. They are are on a family sailing trip to Bristol Bay.
