When 10-year-old Jared's class assignment entails writing letters to soldiers serving overseas, he finds a friend in Sergeant Vince Carrera. Jared's letters hit home with Vince and the two continue to write back and forth. While on leave, Vince pays a surprise visit to his young pen pal and when Jared's recently divorced mom, Dana, answers the door, it's love at first sight. Despite her attraction to Vince, Dana is afraid to fall for someone who will soon be sent back overseas. The more they get to know each other, the less they are able to deny themselves the love they've been so reluctant to seek out and, when Vince is deployed again, Dana must decide whether she and Jared can afford to wait for his return. Stars Lori Loughlin and Johnny Messner.
