The Screen Guide

In the Dead Letter Office sit thousands of fading dreams - correspondence dislocated from destination. It is here that Alice, vulnerable and impetuous, starts a search for her long-absent father. But first she meets Frank, in hiding from his past. Frank teaches Alice how to salsa, and Alice - well she's the one who gets him dancing again in the first place. The Dead Letter Office. A funny place to find love.
