Based on the book by #1 New York Times bestselling author Eckhart Tolle and Robert Friedman, Milton’s Secret is a movie about family and the uncertain times families live in. Milton is a 12 year-old boy growing up in an economically and socially unpredictable world. His mother and father (Mia Kirshner, David Sutcliffe) are workaholics with marital and financial problems, and he is bullied at school. When his grandfather (Donald Sutherland) visits, Milton learns rehashing the past and worrying about the future are preventing him from finding true happiness.
Milton's mom, very smart and ambitious lady, works as Real Estate Agent and always worries about the future, how they are going to live and they may lose the house. Milton's dad is always on the phone not to miss an important call. The boy sees everyone on their own planet and often tells what is happening there, on Planet Fear or Planet Future. Trying to help his mom, Milton tries to make gold during multiple experiments after school with his friend, so that they can sell gold and do not worry any more about the future. The bully at school makes a nasty record of Milton and posts it on-line.
Everything falls apart for a young boy until Milton's grandfather comes to change everyone's life in his family. Mostly Granddad does not do anything complicated, he just shows what everyone should care for, how to enjoy every moment of your life happening right now.
The most symbolic is the gift given to Milton by his grandfather, it is a beaker, just a big empty beaker to fill with what you want to get for your life. If you fill the beaker with beauty it will be beautiful, if you fill the beaker with pain and hate, the life will be miserable.
