So when Adaline meets the charming philanthropist Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman), whose father William (Harrison Ford) she knew many years ago, she's presented with a chance at love she never expected to happen. But to truly have the happily ever after, she will have to give up her immortality and that's a life-changing decision.
