Synopsis: On Valentine’s Day, a weary postman trudges through the February snow. He’s out delivering brightly coloured envelopes decorated with hearts and cupids, addressed to all of the doors in his neighbourhood – apart from one. Special Delivery is a film with no dialogue, but a lot of heart. It particularly seeks to challenge perceptions about location, by exposing the presence of love and kindness in the most notorious of neighbourhoods.
