Tyler Doherty (Tanner Maguire) is an extraordinary eight-year-old boy. Surrounded by a loving family and community, and armed with the courage of his faith, he faces his daily battle against cancer with bravery and grace. Tyler’s prayers take the form of letters, which he daily writes and mails. The letters find their way into the hands of postman Brady McDaniels (Jeffrey Johnson), who is at a crossroads in his life. He is suffering from alcohol abuse and dispirited by divorce.

At first, he is confused and conflicted over what to do with the letters. Overtime he begins to form a friendship with the Doherty family – getting to know not just Tyler but his tough, tender yet overwhelmed mom (Robyn Lively), stalwart grandmother (Maree Cheatham) and teen brother Ben (Michael Bolten) – all of whom are trying to stand strong against the doubts that come over Tyler’s cancer and its effect on their lives. Moved by Tyler’s courage, Brady realizes what he must do with the letters, a surprise decision that will transform his heart and uplift his newfound friends and community.
