A Fonder Heart is based on a true story about Joey Boone, 15 year-old boy, and Craig Thomas, 59 year-old self-made multimillionaire developer. Joey and Craig became hospital roommates in 1974. Joey believes that he is simply being looked at for a minimal knee surgery due to a basketball injury, while Craig fears the worst...that life and old age have finally caught-up with him, and that he is dying. The two eventually develop empathy for each other's personal problems and issues, as well as life's similar hardships.
