As accountant James Smith approaches his 40th birthday, he concludes that his life is tedious, ho-hum, dull, and, well… mediocre. He can’t image the vast ways that those around him are affected by his simple, caring acts.
James Smith is an ordinary man, with an ordinary name, leading a very ordinary life.
Little does he know his seemingly insignificant acts of kindness—from saying hello to the doorman every day to leaving a generous tip for a waitress—make a difference. All James can see is others’ successes compared to his failings as a husband, father, and friend. So when his wife decides to throw him a birthday party, James has no idea that one special gift is going to change his perspective—and his life.
