After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy®winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about kindness, love and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbor. Directed by Marielle Heller and Written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster, the film also stars Chris Cooper and Susan Kelechi Watson.
