About the project

What would you do if you found a letter asking you to write to a stranger?

Alex Carter and Zoe Ballard are two teenagers from San Diego who start writing letters to each other as part of a school assignment. At first, the letters are the typical "getting to know you" exchanges you would expect from penpals. But as life deals unexpected turns to Alex and Zoe, they open up to each other more and more, building a strong and unique friendship.
