Zooey and Alec Morrison are a married couple who are struggling to bridge the painful gap that is developing between them. Unable to conceive, the Morrisons await confirmation of a child to foster. One day, a seven years 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. Eli offers moral support and idealistic suggestions to his foster parents on how to repair and re-kindle their love for each other. The couple begin to rebuild their foundations at home, at work and emotionally until they find the love they once had for each other. But all may not be as it seems...

For what it's worth, here's what I know. We, and by we I mean humans, for some reason we find it hard to let go of the past. I'm not saying there's no place for memories. What I'm saying is you can't live today in the past because then your future will look just the same as it did yesterday. You can't live in the future either because then today will pass you by. The only way to be truly happy is to connect with the present, connect with the moment.
