A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism is based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. Through his TV programme Fred Rogers Neighborhood, Fred Rogers was the beloved neighbour of millions of American children. His programme stressed kindness and compassion. Jaded magazine writer Lloyd Vogel, (name changed Junod character) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers; he is determined to discover the sordid truth behind the T.V. persona. His budding friendship with Rogers teaches Vogel as much about himself as the subject on which he is writing.
