In theaters Friday, 33 Letters follows a Chinese orphan, Mei Mei (Zhu Lin), who has dreamed for 10 years of finally meeting her Australian sponsor, Dean (Pearce), and his "perfect family." Opportunity knocks when her orphanage travels Down Under to attend a Choir Festival, and Mei Mei tracks down Dean – only to discover that the man and his "perfect family" are nothing like the vision that he presents. In fact, she finds him behind bars, clinging to his idyllic fantasy as a coping mechanism. Initially mismatched and disconnected, the two begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance.
