"I wanted to make a film not about Fred Rogers' story but about his ideas. There was something in his tone and words that struck me: this is a grownup voice I just don't hear anymore. He was talking about civility, about compassion, about grief and about the hard work of being human. It sounded like he was talking about the world today. I immediately felt I wanted to explore this further in a film."
--Morgan Neville, director
