A tale of friendship between two unlikely pen pals: Mary, a lonely, eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max, a forty-four-year old, severely obese man living in New York.
In one of the many letters Mary sends to Max, she sends a picture of her Dog Sonny digging up the skeleton of his wife Cher; These are the names of Val's pet-dogs from Harvie Krumpet, Another animation by Adam Elliot.
Mary Dinkle's eyes were the color of muddy puddles. Her birthmark, the color of poo.
When Max is in the hospital, the sign over his bed says "Nil By Mouth," a medical instruction which, while routine in Commonwealth nations, is unknown in the US.
Before the end credits the next quote appears: "God gave us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends" by Ethel Watts Mumford.
