Zooey (Toni Collette) and Alec (Ioan Gruffud) are struggling to bridge the painful gap that is developing between them. Unable to conceive, they await confirmation of a child to foster. One day, a seven years old boy called Eli (Maurice Cole) 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.
