So, several years ago, I saw the tail-end of an ad for a movie. The title sparked an idea for a novel that I planned to write someday. I decided that someday would be this November, having forgotten -- or possibly deluded myself into disbelieving that -- I had gotten the idea from this movie.

Well, I decided to search what I thought the title was (which I was half-certain I had come up with myself) and found that the exact title was actually the title of a movie.

And the plot is pretty much exactly the same of what I had planned.

If I go ahead and write this, is it plagiarism? I haven't seen the movie, and the only thing that will be similar will be the plot, and I imagine, since I haven't seen it, there will be some variations. What would happen if I wanted to get this published? Could I be sued? I obviously plan on changing the title (and therefore a character's name) as a result of discovering this unfortunate remembrance.

Help?

(For those of you interested, the name I had "come up with" was Searching for David's Heart. This is also the title of the movie.)
