Promise the Moon is a 1997 film by Kevin Sullivan, based on the book The Four Arrows Fe-As-Ko by Randall Beth Platt. The script was adapted by Kevin Sullivan and Peter Behrens, directed by Ken Jubenvill; the film won a Gemini Award for Best Costume Design. Ranch hand Roy Leckner gets more than he bargained for when he agrees to fulfill his bosses dying wish to bring home his long lost son Levi and teach him to take over the Four Arrows Ranch. Roy finds living in an institution where he's been his entire life. Roy has no idea how he is going to be able to teach the boy anything and to make matters worse, Sir Robert Butler a local, cut throat businessman, is plotting to take over the ranch. Roy thinks the case is hopeless until Butler’s former secretary Jane Makepeace joins forces with Roy to keep her greedy ex-employer at bay; the prim and proper Jane brings order to the household and discovers that Levi can’t speak because he is deaf. Jane and Roy join forces to teach Levi to communicate and work on the ranch and an unlikely romance blossoms between them.
In the end, in spite of their differences, Roy and Levi defeat Butler and forge a family in the process.
