In the beautiful hills of Copper Canyon in Chihuahua, Mexico, a young boy, Emilio is adopted by Teo the mailman. As part of their daily tasks, they not only deliver the mail but read the letters to the villagers, as well as take dictation, since most are illiterate. Young Emilio quickly learns to read and write but feels saddened by the mostly difficult stories sent by villagers that moved to the US in pursuit of better futures. One day Teo becomes disabled and Emilio takes over the mail route and with great imagination, he changes the letters to happy and optimistic stories.  Within days the village is transformed. While on duty, Emilio meets a young girl named Elena who becomes his first love.
