“No, I can’t just blurt it out like that. Who are you, Darth Vader?”

Dylan, a Florida dentist, living a solitary life, gets a visit from Xavier Cruz (L. Warren Young). He says, “I found her.” Found who? Anna, a long lost daughter he’d been searching for twenty-five years.

After revealing this secret, Dylan (Wendell Pierce) admits Anna doesn’t know he didn’t know she even existed.

Uneasy about making this unusual introduction, Dylan takes a trip to New York and shadows her for two days; finding out some very important information. Anna is a photographer who drinks coffee, hates hipsters, can take care of herself, is a lesbian, and has some sort of illness.

When he tries to find out what type of illness Anna (Jurnee Smollett) has, the receptionist in the hospital refuses to divulge the information. Because upon introducing himself as her father, the receptionist says, “That’s strange, she listed her father as deceased.”

After a not so pleasant meeting, Lucy admits not knowing Dylan; because her mother told her he was dead. So at this point, neither party knew the other existed.

How do you pick up the pieces of a lost relationship with someone you never knew existed? The only common thread—her mother, a heroine addict who overdosed when she was fifteen years old. Leaving her to the mercy of an already failing system. The same woman Dylan loved and tried to help kick the habit, but she ran away.

Dylan soon finds out that because of her mother’s drug addiction, Anna has a life-threatening kidney disease.

They begin building a friendship through writing letters—something Anna really enjoys doing. In building this friendship, Dylan decides to donate a kidney to help Anna and in the process finds true love.

Was Dylan able to qualify as a kidney donor and who is this true love he found? You will have to watch the movie to get the answers. I must admit, the spoiler has so many quirks it will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy all over.

This movie is all about unconditional love. Sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
