Dear Frankie Overview

To protect her nine-year-old son, Frankie, from the truth, his mom, Lizzie (Emily Mortimer), has invented a story to satisfy Frankie's curiosity. She regularly writes Frankie a letter from his make-believe father who works aboard a ship traveling to exotic lands. However, Lizzie soon finds out his "father's" ship will be arriving in a few days. Now, Lizzie must choose between telling Frankie the truth and hatching a desperate plan to find the perfect stranger to play the perfect father.
