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.
Writer and director Adam Elliot clarified that the character of Max was inspired by "a pen-friend in New York who I've been writing to for over twenty years."
Mary Dinkle's eyes were the color of muddy puddles. Her birthmark, the color of poo.
When Mary sees all of her letters on Max's wall, there are letters which are exact duplicates of others.
The end credits show animated portraits of the characters, with the actors names beneath them.
