Running away from the father of her deaf son Frankie when he was very young, Lizzie (Mortimer) has created a fictional history for her son in which the father is eternally at sea on a ship called the HMS Accra, even as the duo have spent the last nine years moving from place to place in Scotland frequently. Lizzie even goes so far to embellish the fantasy as writing letters every few weeks to Frankie from the fictitious version of his father, entertaining Frankie with tales of far away lands. The fantasy appears likely to be doomed soon, however, when Frankie learns that the real life HMS Accra is due to dock nearby their current home town, so Lizzie sets about to find someone who pose as Frankie's sailor father.
A gold-plated 3 hankie movie. For chicks and sensitive guys only methinks.
