A Letter for Joe

Set in 1970s Las Vegas and Florida, “A Letter for Joe” is a modern retelling of the Bible story of Joseph and the power of forgiveness. Seventeen year old Joe Roberts is given a prank letter by his older brother and his friends, a letter that sends Joe on a wild goose chase to Las Vegas for a fake meeting with reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes. Armed with only the phony letter and God’s promises that all things work together for good, Joe, in fact, is able to meet the richest man in America and strike up a friendship. As Joe is prospering, the fortunes of the older boys go in the opposite direction. They fear that when Joe finally returns home he will retaliate for the elaborate ruse. And the depth of God’s forgiveness is put to the test for all of the young men, for several very different reasons. What started as a joke, turns deadly serious and while determining that true forgiveness is no joke.
