Single father Penn has the mental capacity of a seven-year-old which makes authorities question his ability to raise young daughter Fanning. Pfeifer's the hard-edged lawyer who comes to his aid and becomes a better person for it. Overly sentimental and sweet, with not much new to offer except the obvious talent of Fanning.
