Nine-year-old Frankie is deaf, and lives with his mum, Lizzie. But they move around a lot, and Frankie has never met his dad, a sailor on the HMS Accra - although he writes to him frequently, telling him all about his exploits. When Frankie realises the Accra is set to visit the small Scottish coastal town he's living in, he's over the moon at the chance to finally meet his father. But Lizzie's hiding a secret - they're on the run from Frankie's real father, and she's the one sending him the letters. Rather than reveal the truth, she decides to hire someone to act as Frankie's perfect dad for a day.
