Dear Sidewalk tells the story of Gardner, a 24 year old mail-carrier, who is struggling to contend with his identity as his quarter-life crisis is in full swing. His regimented routine is thrown out the window when he meets Paige, a divorcee, enduring a mid-life crisis of her own. In this relationship there exists a synchronicity, as they find, despite their age difference, they're both confronting existential problems surrounding identity, love, and the choices in front of them.

Gardner and Calvin throw horseshoes while discussing Gardner's problems.

But when the camera shows a closeup of the peg, Gardner has three perfect ringers around the peg. See more
