The script was written by Virgil Wiliams, based on Dana Canedy’s New York Times best-selling memoir, which was published in 2008.
It is based on the true story of Sergeant Charles Monroe King (Jordan), “a soldier deployed to Iraq who begins to keep a journal of love and advice for his infant son. Back at home, senior New York Times editor Dana Canedy (Chanté Adams) revisits the story of her unlikely, life-altering relationship with King and his enduring devotion to her and their child. A sweeping account of a once-in-a-lifetime love, the film is a powerful reminder of the importance of family and the all-too-human cost of war.”
Robert Wisdom, Johnny M. Wu, Jalon Christian and Tamara Tunie also star.
Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing with Washington and Jordan. BRON Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert is also a producer, and Jason Cloth is an executive producer through Creative Wealth Media.
