Synopsis

Every delivery day, 83 year-old Lethe waits at her mailbox for the mailman to arrive. Widowed at a young age, she now lives alone in her house in a rural Utah neighborhood that her father built and her husband Francis fixed up. She expectantly walks to the mailbox hoping for cards and letters from her family, but none have arrived for many months. At least joking with Mike, the friendly mailman, eases her loneliness a bit.

Our Review:

This movie touches on a subject that is very hard on many people. Loneliness. It is a very emotional short that BYU made and it is one of the classic films that many LDS people have grown to love. Many have seen this short in seminary and thought that it was corny. However, it is still one of those shorts that brings a tear to your eye every time you watch it. This movie will make you want to contact your relatives before it is too late. Although the movie is a short, you are going to feel the spirit enter your heart and you will want to be a better person. This is something that we all need to do within ourselves and it makes it more important when we see it face to face. You will love this movie and you can find a great way to share this with your family and friends.
