Mackenzie "Mack" Phillips suffered physical and emotional abuse as a child at the hands of his drunken father. He witnessed similar abuse of his mother as well. But as an adult he has a bountiful life with his wife, Nan, and their three children: Kate, Josh and Missy. Mack's life is shattered, however, when disappears during a camping trip while he is saving Kate and Josh during a canoeing accident. The tragedy derails Mack's life until the onset of winter when he receives an anonymous unstamped, typewritten note in his mailbox. The message is signed "Papa" (which was Nan's nickname for God) and invites him to a meeting at the cabin. To meet the anonymous correspondent, you’ll have to see the movie.
