The recovery of a mail bag stolen in a robbery 15 years before has varying consequences on the lives of five of the recipients of the letters, when the post office decide that the mail should be delivered. Several lives are changed, as witnessed by a newspaper reporter, accompanied by a post office security officer, who decide to follow up on several of the letters.


Critical reception

AllMovie called it "a throwback to the British "portmanteau" films of the 1950s";[2] while TV Guide gave the film two out of four stars, and wrote, "the effect of the late letters' delivery to the recipients makes for five delightful little tales. Good performances all the way around."[3]
