The Love Letter

Dearest, do you know how much in love with you I am?

Loblolly-by-the-sea is a small town that used to be called Reckless Town. Can an anonymous, unaddressed love letter make the town reckless again.

A quiet ensemble story with a simple device to trigger people to take chances and to make declarations that otherwise they would keep to themselves.

She hates the idea of an aged parent. Imagine how it feels to have an aged daughter.

No one knows who sent it. No one knows who it's for. But everyone's getting the same message.

When a simple story is simply-told, with a quiet supportive soundtrack and collected performances, there is little left to say except that this is an enjoyable trip into the human heart.

I remain, yours.
