Otto (Tom Hanks) is a grumpy isolated widower with staunch principles, strict routines and a short fuse, who gives everyone in his neighborhood a hard time as he watches over it like a hawk. Just as it seems like he's finally given up on life, an unlikely and reluctant friendship develops with his new neighbors.
Little by little, Otto undergoes a subtle transformation... but is he really capable of change?
The film will be directed by Marc Forster.

Fredrik Wikstrm Nicastro, Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman are producing. Marc Forster, Rene Wolfe and David Magee will serve as executive producers.
The film stars Tom Hanks, Mariana Trevio, Rachel Keller and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo.
