A story of friendship between two unlikely pen buddies: Mary, a lonely, eight-year-old woman dwelling within the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max, a forty-four-year previous, severely overweight man dwelling in New York. Within the mid-1970’s, a homely, friendless Australian woman of eight picks a reputation out of a Manhattan cellphone ebook and writes to him; she features a chocolate bar. He writes again, with chocolate. Thus begins a 20-year correspondence. Will the 2 ever meet head to head?
