In time, her situation becomes known to the government and the FBI pick her up to be investigated. She escapes and goes on the run, changing her identity every 10 years. Only her daughter knows who she really is. Over the years, she has brief relationships with men but always runs when it gets serious. Then she meets Ellis (Michiel Huisman). They date and she agrees to meet his parents. His father, William (Harrison Ford), turns out to be a man Adaline loved in the 1960s and left when he was about to propose. William knows who she is and confronts her. He convinces her to stop running and to love his son. She decides to do this, but then has another accident that starts her aging again. She and Ellis marry and grow old together.

Review - Age of Adaline, The

An interesting premise, but a bit slow. I would have enjoyed it more if it followed the story of her life more.
