Based on Dana Canedyʼs essay, which describes a 200-page journal penned by her fiancé, 1st Sgt. Charles Monroe King, for their infant son. The 48-year-old soldier was killed in Baghdad in October, one month shy of finishing his tour of duty. He left for the Middle East before his son was born. A sweeping account of a once-in-a-lifetime love, the film is a powerful reminder of the importance of family.
