    • Synopsis
    • Zooey (Toni Collette) and Alec Morrison (Ioan Gruffudd) are a married couple who have been unable to heal the wounds caused by the death of their 5 year old son several years ago.
      Now unable to conceive, the Morrisons await confirmation of a child to foster.
      One day, a 7 year old boy who calls himself ‘ELI’ appears on their doorstep quite mysteriously, explaining the foster agency has sent him.
      The boy is old beyond his years and it becomes apparent that he is the listening ear amongst the couple's marriage breakdown. The boy offers moral support and idealistic suggestions to his foster parents on how to repair and re-kindle their love for each other.
      Adored by his foster Mother and admired by his foster Father, the couple begin to rebuild their foundations at home, at work and emotionally until they find the love they once had for each other.
      Miraculously, Zooey discovers she has conceived - a baby is on the way.
      Simultaneously, Eli mysteriously disappears... leaving only a letter on his bed.
