In the 1970's, a lonely, eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, picks a name out of a Manhattan phone book and writes to the desired person; she includes a chocolate bar. She's Mary Dinkle, the only child of an alcoholic mother and a distracted father. He's Max Horowitz, living alone in New York, overweight, subject to anxiety attacks. He writes back, with chocolate, answering Mary's many questions. Thus begins a 20-year correspondence, interrupted by a stay in an asylum and a few misunderstandings. Will the two ever meet face to face?
