Summary
For a class assignment, a troubled young boy named Leo, begins to write to Stephen, a convicted felon in prison. Through their letters, Stephen has a lifeline to the outside world and Leo finds fatherly strength and guidance as he struggles with his mother's tragic past. When he is released from prison, Stephen sets out on a journey to help the boy and perhaps in the process, he can redeem himself. On his way, some co-workers help him, while others deliberately stand in his way
