The film, which has been written and directed by Tracie Laymon, follows a "people-pleasing" young woman (Ferreira).
Whilst searching for her estranged father online, she unexpectedly forms a close bond with a grieving, childless man with the same name on Facebook (John Leguizamo).
"This is a story about learning to let go of the people who continually hurt you to make room for the people who want to love and support you," said Laymon in a statement (via Variety).
"Having personally experienced many of the events that inspired this film, I've witnessed how our small acts of kindness toward others create a ripple effect that can change the world for the better."
Kirk D’Amico, executive producer for the film, added in a statement: "We are so pleased to have been able to help Tracie Laymon and her team get through principal photography. The cast has provided extraordinary performances.
"I think distributors will be pleasantly surprised to see this unique comedy with heart come to life on the screen. We look forward to introducing the film to distributors around the world during this upcoming TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival)," he concluded.

In addition to Ferreira and Leguizamo, the cast for the project includes French Stewart, Rachel Bay Jones and The Sex Lives of College Girls star Lauren ‘Lolo’ Spencer. The film is Laymon's first feature-length production, with Myriad Pictures handling worldwide sales rights.
