Overview

This soul stirring journey of renewal begins on a Maine summer night in 1955. Gwen appears to rent a cottage from Amy and her wheelchair bound brother Stan. She is venturing into a new life following the death of her mother, whom she nursed. On a whim, Amy places a "Wanted to Correspond" ad, but her notions of romance backfire when only Stan responds. Just when things get out of hand, longing, love and loyalty conspire to open new doors for all in this seamless blend of well developed characters and memorable songs by the noted pop artist.
