A film based on a true, touching story of how faith and love can overcome a lifetime of pain and anger. Dan Donahue (Thom Matthews) has finally met the woman of his dreams. But on the night he is going to propose, he is overcome by deep-rooted anger caused by the father who abandoned him as a boy.
Dan confronts his feelings of bitterness head on as he pours out his heart in a letter to his father. As Dan writes, we see his life unfold, feeling his pain and ultimate joy, as we watch him grow from young boy to troubled teen and finally into a strong, spiritual man.
In the end it is Dan’s father, played brilliantly by John Ashton who must face his own failures as a father in a climactic one on one meeting with the son he left behind.

If you haven’t seen this film, you need to. This is a film about the effects of divorce on a child. I have to admit it was difficult watching parts of this film because it brought back so many memories of what I went through as a child of divorcing parents. This is a true story about forgiveness.
As an added bonus, there was Great Music and Scenery throughout this film as well.

As a side note here, I would recommend writing a letter to your dad, whether he is still alive or deceased, a letter of forgiveness if he needs to be forgiven, or a letter of thankfulness for being a great dad. It’s therapy, even if you choose not to send it!
