PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
After having responded to her son's numerous letters in the guise of his father, a woman hires a stranger to pose as his dad when meeting him.
The song that plays while Lizzie (Emily Mortimer) is sitting on a bench crying after a fruitless attempt to find a "daddy" for Frankie, is written by one of the most famous contemporary Estonian composer - Arvo Pärt.
Frankie wasn't born deaf. It was a present from his daddy.
When Lizzie is climbing up the hill to the overlook, her knees are wet before she kneels on the grass.
