Frankie, who is nine, writes to his father all the time in this DVD. However, it's his mother getting the letters and replying to them. Frankie's father abused him when he was small and made him deaf, bringing his mother to move constantly to keep him away from his father. This move is to Scotland (where the local fish-and-chip store owner is played by Sharon Small from L&O:CI) and we see Frankie's ability to deal with his deafness.
Suddenly there's another problem: Frankie's mom told him his dad was on the cargo ship Accra so his dad was always away, but Accra is coming into their port. What will she do? She tries and finds someone to play Frankie's dad.
Frankie likes his "dad" but things get complicated. I really liked this movie.
