Letters to Linda is a touching story of two men from different worlds and different generations whose search for redemption brings their lives together.
Floyd is an old man whose only company is his faithful dog, Boomer, and the scores of trophies from successes long since faded. In the twilight of his life, he realizes that wealth has lost its importance, the accomplishments their comfort, and fame its virtue.
Instead, he is left with only an aged cigar box to contemplate the true value of his existence.
The dusty box contains twenty letters to his wife, Linda, each one sealed and unopened since the day it was written. Spanning over forty years, the letters detail the most intimate account of their life together. For the first time, he finds the courage to open the letters and uncover the answers to the questions that haunt him.
But a chance encounter on the beach gives Floyd some unexpected company in the guise of a mysterious young man. Stirred to understand the problems that plague his new friend, Floyd offers to share the story of his life as preserved within the letters. Floyd summons the strength to bare his past, the triumphs and the tragedies, in hopes that the stories written on the aged pages might somehow touch the troubled young stranger.
And in so doing, perhaps an old man might finally find his own salvation.
