When Maggy Fuller (Aley Underwood) receives an anonymous letter full of praise and encouragement, she can?t imagine who would say such wonderful things to her. After all, the rebellious teenager is practically invisible to her dad and a disappointment to her mom. Her search for the mysterious letter?s author leads her Sam Worthington (Bernie Diamond), an aging man who tries to change the world using a pen name, a phone book, and one handwritten note at a time. Maggy?s unlikely new friend seems to know her better than anyone and inspires her to become a letter writer, too, but a tragedy tests her faith, forcing her to continue her search for her own purpose in life.

Highly recommend for very feel good movie.
Though there were major differences in generational lifestyles between the teenage girl and the senior, his encouraging letter bridges the gap enough to have her want to find the writer. Yes, this film is good for anyone yet a couple comments reveal he is a Christian. Isn't his willingness to step outside of his normal life to attend her singing performance an important aspect? This demonstrates all the more that love is more than words, it's action, not a noun but a verb.
After watching this film I realized I was a letter writer and one can possibly make a difference whether or not there is response. In this age of texting and e-mail, there is still a place for a snail mail note. The vibrancy of youth and the vitality of a loving heart came together beautifully in this film and may inspire you to think of whom you can affect by your words and deeds. An exceptionally touching film.
I do have to warn you that you will need to keep the Kleenex box handy during this movie, but mainly during the last 30 minutes. I had tears of sadness and tears of joy for the people in this movie.
