- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A widow begins writing a journal for her son including about his late father who wrote his own words of wisdom to their son before his death.
It's 2007 and Dana Canedy (CHANTE ADAMS) is still grieving over the combat death of her husband, 1st Sergeant Charles Monroe King (MICHAEL B. JORDAN), in Iraq the year before. It's then that she dreams of him leaning in close and whispering about their infant son, "Tell him everything." As a result, she starts writing a journal for little Jordan, much as his father did for him before his untimely death.
It's not until Jordan (JALON CHRISTIAN) is a teenager that he really learns about his father, and during those intervening years, we see flashbacks to when Dana and Charles first met, fell in love, and then had to contend with his constant deployments overseas. Those moments and other material end up being the words of wisdom that the father leaves for his son.

- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
