This is one of those sentimental dramas that just tries too hard.

The story of a little boy with health problems. Cast aside by society because he is different he endures his pain with quiet dignity and a faith in God that should inspire us all. He is sure that God had a plan for him and that one day he would be a hero. This film isn't only about the "vertically challenged" Simon but about his friend Joe who has no dad and whose mom was accidentally killed by Simon while playing baseball. They both try to find Joseph's real father. This is the story of an unforgettable boy who somehow knew that he had a special mission in life. It is a wonderful, uplifting movie, well acted and full of love and broke my heart in more ways than one.
