Overview

A struggling human interest columnist finds a simple scrap of paper with a profound message may be the key to saving her column from cancellation in this inspirational, made for television drama starring Genie Francis and Ted McGinley. Peyton MacGruder (Francis) is the "Heart Healer" columnist for the local Middleborough Times newspaper. It's Christmas time, and just as the crew of Flight 848 reports a minor electrical problem, Peyton is summoned to her editor's office for a serious discussion about the future of the "Heart Healer" column. According to the results of a recent reader's survey, the "Heart Healer" column was voted the least interesting item that the paper had to offer, and as a result Peyton is about to get the axe. Just as Peyton's editor warns the writer to improve her standing with readers of hit the pavement, word breaks in the newsroom that Flight 848 has crashed, killing everyone aboard. King Danville, Peyton's friend and colleague at the paper, has lost a dear friend in the crash. Pondering whether or not the passengers realized they were going to die while drowning his sorrows at the local sports bar, King wonders aloud whether they had time to say goodbye to their loved ones, half-jokingly suggesting that Peyton work the concept into her failing column. The following day, Peyton is jogging along the beach when she spies smarmy television reporter Truman Harris interrupting a memorial service for the victims, all the while struggling to find an angle that doesn't seem exploitative. That angle arrives in the form of a note that Peyton finds during another walk along the coast. Sealed inside a small plastic bag half filled with cookie crumbs is a note to "T" from "Dad." Peyton is deeply moved by the heartfelt note, and vows to use the "Heart Healer" column as a means for getting the note to its intended recipient. In order to do so, however, Peyton will be forced to contend with her television counterpart Harris, a tactless reporter whose penchant for sensationalizing a story is only matched by his willingness to resort to underhanded tactics in order to take sole credit for all of Peyton's hard work. And while tracking down "T" proves no easy task, Peyton quickly discovers that her latest story truly resonates with readers upon being informed by her publisher that her "Heart Healers" column has gained a loyal following across the country.

    Such a beautiful story - so inspirational

    This is one of the best story lines I have seen in some time. Viewed it first on TV (Hallmark) and absolutely loved it. What an inspiration to anyone who thinks they have lost someone forever - a lesson in how to forgive ourselves as God forgives us. Such a wonderfully tender love story - devoid of the usual current sexual nonsence.

    The Note--A Beautiful Love Story

    I am a huge Genie Francis fan. The casting was really good. Everyone was excellent. The scenery was gorgeous. You must watch the extra
    features. Especially with Genie. She really lets the viewer know how
    important this film was to her and her fans. She's a great actress.
    Hope to see her in more movies. You will watch more than once. Even
    knowing the ending, it's still a tear jerker. It's an old fashion love
    story with a predictable ending...this day and time on a rainy day it
    is perfect.
    I would recommend more of Genie's work were on DVD.
